Crab Rock Painting Craft For Kids

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.

Enjoy!
