Mandala in stone with summer colors
As we like mandalas so much, today we have made another DIY to continue practicing. This is inspired by the summer, with yellow, orange and red colors to express this season full of light, warmth and joy.
To do this mandala in summer stone, you will need these materials.
- 1 stone
- Acrylic paints yellow, orange, red and White
- Sticks and punches
Once you have prepared your materials, remember to protect the surface where you are going to make this DIY before you start, putting some paper or plastic on that surface. Prepare a container with water and paper napkins for your paint brushes and utensils. Now, you can start!
How to paint this cheerful mandala?
To create this summer mandala, these are the steps to follow:
Wash the stone
It is recommended to clean the stone before painting. Wash the stone very well and let it dry before painting.
Painting with acrylic paints
If the stone is dark, start painting it with white paint, especially in the center. Continue painting with the lighter paint in the center, use yellow mixed with white (to clarify).
Without waiting to dry, add the darker shades around. First use the orange, mixed with a little yellow, and then continue with the red mixing all the colors. (I recommend, you clean the brush from time to time, so that the light color does not end up becoming dark.;)
Apply two layers of paint
No te preocupes demasiado en perfeccionar la primera capa de pintura ya que después volverás a pintar encima. Una vez se haya secado la primera capa de pintura, vuelve a hacer lo mismo con la segunda mano, pero esta vez será el resultado final del fondo de tu mandala del verano. Experimenta y deja que el pincel te guíe, verás que bonito queda.
Paint with sticks and punch
When the bottom of your summer mandala has dried, begin by blending yellow with white until you get a lighter shade. Paint a circle in the center or in the place of your choice. Then, with the same tone, paint more points with a smaller stick or punch.
Protects with varnish
Remember to protect with varnish your painted stone crafts and apply a couple of layers.
Ok! Here is the new mandala for the collection!
