Mandala in stone to decorate the terrace or garden
Another great idea is to decorate your terrace or garden with a painted mandala in stone. We have been inspired by the colors and mandalas of the chairs cushions that we have on our terrace that … I love them! ♥♥♥

To make this mandala you will need these materials.
- Sticks and punches of different sizes
- Plugs, caps or compass
- Pencil and rubber
- Acrylic paints white, light blue, dark blue, turquoise, green, pink and red
Before starting to make any craft, protect the surface with paper or plastic. Take a container with water (so that the brushes you are using will not dry) and paper napkins.
Now you are ready to start.
This is the step by step to follow to make your mandala in stone for the garden
1. Wash the stones
Washing the stones before you start is important so that the paint is well fixed on them.
2. Paint with white acrylic paint
Paint the stones with white acrylic paint and give them two or three layers. Allow to dry very well between each layer.
3. Start the center by making pink dots
Draw with a cap to delimit the drawing of the mandala. Paint pink dots with acrylic paint. Start at the center by making a white dot with the sticks to make the dark blue dots inside.
4. Draw a circle with the pencil
Draw a circle around the pink dots leaving space to make the triangles that you can color with blue, white and green. If you want you can use markers, although acrylic paint is better for this case.
5. Paint more dots
Add smaller points to fill in the spaces.
6. Use different sizes for the dots
To add larger dots, you can use the back of a pencil or a cap with which to use it as a pointillism tool.
7. Use the same colors and combine them
When combining the same colors the mandala will have harmony. Therefore, add smaller dots with the same tone punch.
8. Protect with varnish
Finally apply a couple of layers of varnish to protect your mandala, so you can enjoy it longer.
Here is the end result!
If you find it difficult to make a mandala with dots, you can also try doing it with pens instead of using a brush, such as a flower mandala.
