Forest house free coloring page. This started out as a random doodle that grew into a whimsical house surrounded by greenery. I colored it in with Faber-Castel Pitt Artist Brush Pens, which are great for coloring small intricate details but also get a good coverage for larger spaces.

Painted jewelry box and Blue pendant

I made these as a birthday present for a friend of mine. The box is a veneer ready to paint on box that I found at a local arts and crafts store. The pendant I made from air-dry clay which is great because it doesn’t require oven baking and dries to a solid. Then I painted both the box and the the pendant with acrylic paints and used a water-based acrylic varnish as a finishing.

Grey Zentangle Design

A zentangle design done with my favorite set of pens – the Faber-Castell PITT Artist Manga Pens, Shades of Gray set. The variety of hues provides opportunities for achieving interesting effects and can also be used for shading instead of pencils. If you, like me, occasionally have a hard time choosing the right colors for a drawing, you can always pick a couple of grey pens.

How to paint a mandala on a misshapen stone

Purple_Blue_Mandala_Stone

I love painting stones and especially making mandala stones. The thing is, where I live it’s very hard to find stones with even remotely circular shapes, so I have to make do with what I find. However, you don’t need a perfectly circular shaped stone in order to paint a mandala. You just need a stone big and flat enough so that you can draw a decent sized circle on. The stone in the picture above was a great find, but it still wasn’t the perfect shape for a mandala. So here is what I did…

Free Coloring Page 3 – Floral zendala for coloring

A floral zentangle design for coloring. This one is very intricate and it would be best if you color it with well sharpened color pencils or color fineliners. For this particular picture I used Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens. When I color in with pencils I use the Koh-I-Noor brand because the colors are really vibrant. You can download the coloring page in pdf format here.

Dot Painted Mandala Tin with Marigolds

Instead of throwing out this tin, I turned it into a lovely vase using acrylic paints. I had to apply several coats of paint for the background in order to cover all the pictures and labels. Just make sure the paint has dried completely before applying the next layer. (Acrylic paints do dry quickly, but it’s better to have some patience because with such smooth surfaces the paint could come off when you start applying the next layer.) If you use lighter colors – like the yellow I used around the mandala – the pictures and writing on the tin might still come through. Therefore I put the dot arcs and they covered it completely. On the back I just painted dots starting with white and finishing with dark green for a gradient effect. After the paint dried completely (I left it for a couple of days) I sprayed the vase with an acrylic finish spray.
