Saint Patricks Day Leprechaun Rock Painting

Today I’m sharing a fun kids activity which is Saint Patricks Day Rock Painting. We have painted a Leprechaun, a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and a shamrock stone. It was fun making these stones and this is a great arts and craft activity for the kids.

Let’s Make It

First I drew a Leprechaun onto my sketch pad as I find it much easier to plan my picture on paper before drawing onto a rock.

I then drew the same image onto my stone. The smoother the stone the better. At the moment I have been struggling to find smooth stones which means my pencil can get blunt pretty fast so I had my pencil sharpener handy and I needed to use it a few times.

I then began to use the posca paint pens to paint the leprechauns hat. I used black green and yellow paint on the rock stone.

 

 

 

 

I then coloured in the face and hands and used different colour posca paint to paint the stone.

 

 

 

I then coloured in the Leprachauns shoes with a black posca pen. This part of the stone was particularly bumpy and made the paint splatter quite a bit so I had to dot he feet extra carefully.

I then began to outline the Leprechaun, again using a black posca pen for outlining.

 

 

Once the Leprechaun was complete I created a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and a shamrock themed stone.

I was super pleased with the end result.

I am really enjoying painting rock stones and it’s a great activity to do with my daughter as she enjoys it too.

 

Why not try painting your own Leprechaun and Saint Patricks Day Rock Stones. I’d love to see them.

Enjoy.

  1. these are so adorable!! I wish I was this talented. I am horrible at arts and crafts lol I love this idea for my nephew. I will pass it along!

  2. Awww this is so cute and fun! I think it looks a lot easier than it actually is but I wouldn’t mind trying it with my niece and nephew! Maybe even before St. Patrick’s Day rolls around again 🙂

    1. Oh I am practicing and getting better at this. it is fun and simple to do but yes you need to do a few before you get really good at it.

  3. True that st patrick’s day is approaching! nothing planed yet though! these little rocks look super cute! i should try to rock painting once!

  4. This really looks pretty amazing!! And it’s just so cute! I’m trying this in my free time! 🙂

  5. oh my, that’s so cute! I love to draw but usually only on a paper. I am not really good using other coloring tools except pencil color. How long did you take to create those rock stone craft?

    1. The stones took about two hours. It was fun and easy to learn for me. I’m not sure if it’s a natural talent or just an easy craft for anyone.

  6. That is a really neat idea. I have two girls (9 & 11) and this would be something I think we all would enjoy doing together. Where do you get the paint pens from?

  7. Haha…100% cute! I love the creativity of this, and count me in, I love to do this, too. Especially just with Sharpie’s. 😀
