Gecko Rock Stone Art Craft For Kids

Today I am sharing my Gecko Rock stone which happens to be my favourite stone that I have painted so far. I absolutely love it and am really pleased with the final result. When I lived in the Pacific Island of Tonga, we had Gecko’s everywhere. It was really common to see them crawling around on the walls. It became normal and something I got used to. The first time I ever saw a Gecko in my bedroom was strange but over time I got used to it.

Directions

I began by drawing my design on my sketch pad. I find that if I draw the image i want to paint first it always turns out better than if I just go freestyle on a rock.

Next I copied my image from the paper to the rock. In my experience the smoother the rock the better the rock stone image.

 

I then used a metallic green posca pen to draw some shade on my rock stone.

This was then followed by filling in the Gecko’s body, arms and legs with the green posca paint pen.

I used the white posca pen to paint the Gecko’s eyes and add shade to the legs.

I then added the mouth and tongue, some purple shading and began to fill in the rest of the stone.

 

 

I finished colouring the whole Gecko with my posca paint pens and was really pleased with how it looked.

The final step was to outline the Gecko with a black posca pen.

 

I really do love this rock stone and will be keeping it for my collection. I want to do some more creatures as that is what I enjoy painting the most.

So what do you think? Would you like to paint some rock stones? It’s a fun activity for those with chronic illness like myself or as a craft to do with the kids.

ENJOY.
