Supplies Used for this Happy Sun Rock
I am using some beautiful flat stones for my surface from this Etsy shop. For the painting I am using 3M Posca paint pens. The lining has been done with 1M Posca Black paint pen. You can easily create most of the sun with acrylic paints as well. You may still want a extra fine tip pen for the lining.
Creating this Happy Sun Design Step-by-Step
Below you will find step by step images on how to paint this rock. There is a full video tutorial after if you are looking for more details or tips to create this design!
Start with a large yellow circle. Outline the yellow circle with orange, then pink, and then again with the first yellow. Add dots around the outer circle with yellow.
For the lining create a circle on the outer edge of the center yellow circle. Next, add a line inside the orange. Create a dashed line inside of the pink, followed by one more solid line in the outer yellow. Finally, add points inside of the dots and an adorable face! You can easily add words to this rock like “shine bright”.
