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.

How to Paint a Crab on a Stone
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.
