Step by step to make the cactus picture
Before you start you should consider some things: Protect the surface where you go to make your cactus, change clothes using some that you do not mind that it stains, prepare a container with water and paper napkins. And there is only, relax and enjoy this moment. Are you ready?
We begin with the step by step:
1. Make a first example draft
First make a composition of how the craft can be with the frame before painting it, so you will only use and paint the stones you need.
2. Wash the stones
Wash the stones very well to remove any dust that may have, that will make you get the paint better.
3. Paint with acrylic paint
Then, if the stones are dark, paint them in white so that the green looks more alive. Then apply green paint to the stones of the cactus and of pink that are destined to make the flowers. Wait until the paint on the first layer is dry to apply the second, and if necessary, add a third layer.
4. Paint the spines
To make the spines, you can watch the video of cactus painted in stones, there I explain several ways of how you can realize them.
5. Cut out the cardboard
Cut the sheet with the size of the picture.
6. Picture with or without glass
You can make the picture with or without glass, and it will depend on what you like. To give a more professional touch, we have put the crystal. If you opt for the glass, the picture must be deep for the stones to enter inside.
7. Paste painted cactus stones
Once you have all the stones painted and dried, we paste them in the sheet.
8. Apply acrylic varnish
We applied the spray varnish once we had the stones glued together but, if you prefer to apply varnish with a brush, you’d better do it before you stick it on the cardboard, because it could stain with the varnish.
