The first thing is to wash the stones so that the paint grips well.

How to paint the wings?

Mix the blue and white acrylic paint to give a lighter shade and paint the stones on the wings of the dragonfly.

Apply two layers of paint, it is important that you let dry well between layer and layer, otherwise it will spoil you. It is better to have a little patience and wait for it to be dry.

Paint with white acrylic paint the end of the wings.

My advice is that you look at some photography on the internet to go creating the drawing of the shape of the wings.

I have used markers of different colors and thickness.

Body of the dragonfly


Paint the body with the same blue and white acrylic paint.
Then you can draw with green, blue and white markers, and end up profiling the details with black.
For the eyes of the dragonfly, it uses the same markers

Preparing the wood

Sand the wood very well, if you have a sander you will have a best job.
