Supplies for Blended Paint Pen Rocks
I’m sure you could guess this one… paint pens! I am using extra fine tip Poscas for this tutorial. I have tested this with other tip sizes and brands and found they all seem to work pretty well. The extra fine tip pens have more of a plastic nib so they blend back faster. Just make sure you are using water-based pens, acrylic. I have base coated the stones using black acrylic paint. You can find all of these supplies (including these cute round stones) in the link below!

Hack to Blend Your Paint Pens
Below you will find step by step images on how to create this design. There is a full video tutorial after if you are looking for more details or tips!
I have started with a black base coated stone. These flat stones are awesome to paint on, you can find them in the supply link above, but not necessary to pull off this look. Start by placing down some of your letter(s) with your first color. Now take your first color and apply it to the tip of your second color. Just dab a couple of times. Then continue on with your word(s) until it has blended all the way back to its original color.
Continue the process with as many colors as you would like to use. Just remember the color you are putting on top will show first. The pen you will be writing with will show second. I dotted with all of my pens around the word to get off any last bits of paint and to fill in the extra space.
