It’s finally spring and the spring bugs are slowly beginning to appear. My favourite bugs and insects are by far the ladybird and the Butterfly. I find them adorable and absolutely love them.
Today I have painted a fantastic butterfly themed rock stone which I am sure you will love. It’s an easy simple craft which can be created at any age level from toddler and preschooler right through to adult. Enjoy.

How To Make A Butterfly Painted Rock Stone
To begin with you will need to sharpen your pencil and draw the outline of a butterfly onto your rock stone.
The first step will be to paint the body of the butterfly using any colour you use. I went with white and green.
I began by painting the white segments of the body.
I then painted the other segments of the butterfly body with the green posca pen.
Next I added wings.
I decided to do a line style today and drew the lines of the wings with an orange and white posca pen.
I then thickened the lines by doubling over them with my paint pens.
The next step was to add the antenna of the Butterfly using a black paint pen.
I then began to do detailing.
Next I drew around the butterfly body segments and then around the wings.
Once the detail was complete I took a metallic blue posca pen and added detail to the body.
I added white and blue dots to the wings and little black lines onto the body.
Finally I added white eyes with black dots and a mouth.
The butterfly is now complete. Enjoy.

Wow so pretty I used to love painting stones from the beach when I was a girl
Kirsty Fox says
I love this idea and they look so good
The posca paint pens look so easy to use. Doing fine lines with brush are not always a bit tricky.
They are easier than a paint brush but still a little tricky.

This looks like a great idea to get my nieces involved in.
