mandala rocks

Find calm and spread goodwill. Decorate rocks with these beautiful mandala patterns and leave them for others to find and enjoy.
Step 1

Step 1 Use your flat brush to paint a circle in the center of your medium sized rock with Ink Spot acrylic paint. Let dry.


Step 2

Step 2 Use your dotter tools with multi-surface satin acrylic paints to make dots on your medium sized and small sized rocks. Use the appropriately sized dotter tool for each dot. Let dry.

TIP: Replenish your dotter tool with paint frequently.  The more paint on your tool, the bigger the dot. For large dots, swirl your dotter tool in a circle to reach the desired size of the dot. See project photo for reference.

Step 3

Step 3 Use your liner brush to paint a circle that fits the perimeter of your largest rock with Wicker White paint. Let dry.

TIP: You can add a few drops of water to your Wicker White paint to achieve an even continuous circle without having to reapply paint to your brush.

Step 4

Step 4 Paint a scalloped edge to your circle with Wicker White. Let dry.


Step 5

Step 5 Use your liner brush to paint Moon Yellow stripes inside your circle. Let dry.

TIP: You can add a few drops of water to your Moon Yellow paint to create long even lines.

Step 6

Step 6 Use your dotter tool to place Moon Yellow dots in the centers of your scalloped edges. Let dry.
