Painting Stones Mandala: How To
We have a painting activity for you this week from Search Press. Create a tranquil mandala following our simple steps.
Our bright mandala was created by the designer to represent peace.
It is easy to make and we have included step-by-step instructions for you to follow.
You will need a selection of good quality acrylic paints and varnishes as well as a selection of paint brushes and cocktail sticks (for the tiny dots).
Most important of all, you will need a suitable smooth, clean stone.
We have graded this an easy design. Getting the right size of dot might take a little practice but that is easy to do on a spare stone or thick cardboard.
The design comes from the book, “Painting Stones” by Marion Kaiser, published at the end of June by Search Press. We have a special post-free offer in the magazine if you would like to pre-order a copy.
The author and creator of this design, Marion Kaiser writes about it: “As I paint, I enter a state of tranquillity, which develops as I work and endures when I contemplate the finished stone.”
A great way to relax from every day stresses.
