Crab Rock Painting Craft For Kids

Ever since I watched The Little Mermaid as a child I have always loved crabs, especially cartoon style crabs. Sebastian is such a fun character and I love his Jamaican accent. Today we have a fun Crab on a rock themed rock painting craft for the kids to try. It is really easy and fun to do. Whether your a child or an adult this could be super fun to make. Enjoy.

Let’s Make It

First I sketched my crab onto a sketch pad. This helped me to work out what I wanted my crab to look like.  I then drew my image onto the rock using a pencil.

Next I painted over the pencil outline with a thin white posca pen.

I coloured in the crabs eyes and then began to colour the main body with a thick red posca pen.

The next step was to outline my crab using the black posca pen.

Once the main outlines was drawn, I added black eyes, spots to the crabs face and small details. I used a metallic red pen to add shadow to the crab and added some white dots for detail.

The crab is now finished. I can’t wait to make some more stones. You can check out what I’ve made so far over in my  rock stone category here!

Enjoy!
