Creating beautiful art doesn’t require for you to be a specialized artist. In fact, the DIY community helps out with whatever design or decorating project you can think of. In this tutorial, you get to find out how to make a beautiful mandala stone. The main accents of color used are green and blue while materials involved are acrylic paints and synthetic brushes. You could also use some nail art brushes and dotting tools to give the mandala a good and clean design. Find a smooth, round and flattened stone to work on and follow the instructions provided on the next webpage. Oh and remember this nice trick: paint a big circle with a dark color at first, this ay the other colors applied on top will only be enhanced.
These unique and original pieces of art are available below…

Are you using a calligraphy pen in the one video?
Can you tell me if you can/should/do put a fixative spray or layer on top to keep the print from being damaged?
Can people buy one of these Mandala stones?
What kind of paint brush is she using in this ? Please ! Dying to know
Your video shows the white paint ina small jar but your link only shows acrylic pain in tubes which is much thicker. Where do I get the white paint in the small jar? It’s confusing. The video doesn’t match up with the links?
Who did the music for the video?
What type of calligraphy pen are you using in the video? Thanks.
What are you using to create the design. Pen ? Ink ?

Thank you! My dip pen is a custom made wooden nib holder made by a New Zealand woodturner, with a Speedball Hunt 512 nib and the ink is Daler-Rowney FW Acrylic Ink.
I also would like to know what tool she is using and the paint? See this question asked several times but no answer. I have some black stones and I like to add writing to my painting, this would be ideal but I don’t know what the tool or ink/paint is. Thanks for any help.
a message above says “My dip pen is a custom made wooden nib holder made by a New Zealand woodturner, with a Speedball Hunt 512 nib and the ink is Daler-Rowney FW Acrylic Ink.”
you can buy the nib on Amazon as well as the ink and a nib holder.
The painting instrument she’s using is a paint pen they were being sold in the nail polish area at Walgreens when nail-art was trending, Michaels and craft stores and online
the list of supplies does not include the nib, ink and nib holder for the first part of the video. comment above lists those.
I have a large wooden box I would love to do a mandala on . Is this possible, pleas any tips greatly appreciated. Thank you for making the world more beautiful.
Magnifique, beautiful! I will made stone mandala
These paintbrushes are just fine for watercolor painting, or acrylic or ink. The brushes hold the pigments well, and produce even washes or fine lines, depending on the strokes and they clean up easily. They are a good budget minded brush, obviously not like the fine sable or animal hair expensive brushes but they work well for much less money.
Thank you very much!
