Wash the stone

Before starting to paint as on any surface we must make sure the surface is clean.

Choose preferably a smooth stone, in this case I chose a slightly porous one and the truth is that it is noticed in the result (the drawing is not defined)

We have painted the white stone to better highlight the colors that we have applied.

Profiles with markers

You can profile before painting with the paint or you can do it later, I prefer to do it sooner. Use a special or permanent marker pen.

To have a good result, profile again with the marker. Give him some details to give depth and make it more colorful.

If you are wrong there is no problem, wait for it to dry and repaint the same color and repeat the profiling.

Special points

To highlight we have made some points around the drawings, some in white and others in gold, you can use a fine brush, a punch or markers.
