Step by step

Here are the points to keep in mind:

Wash the stones

Wash the stones very well with a brush to remove any dirt and so the paint will look great.

Paint the stones with white paint

Paint the stones with a couple of coats of white acrylic paint to give it more brightness, at the end your DIY will be better.

Remember to let dry between each coat of paint.

Paint with paints or markers

Choose the colors that you like more to paint your own fish or guide you through ours, you can also look at some images of Pinterest. We have mixed markers and acrylic paint.

First you can start by painting the bottom of the fish with the colors you want.

Outlines with black pen

Once the fish has been painted with the paint, we can use a permanent black marker pen (the number 0.6 goes very well), or a special marker for Stone.

Details with the awl (Pointillism)

To do pointillism you need a little patience, but the result is precious. Use punches of different sizes to start, try and experiment with chopsticks, with the back of a brush or with the pencil erarser. You will like it!

Paint a good background

We have painted the background by mixing a turquoise blue with a silver color, thus imitating a marine bottom and giving a more lively color to the fish.

Protecting DIY with varnish

Protect your work of art with acrylic varnish at the end. This way you’ll get brightness on your diy and it will last longer. Also, if you decide to put them in water, it is best to give them two or three layers of varnish so that the paint does not spoil.
