Step by step instructions for this Christmas tree painted rock
I use 1M (Extra Fine) Poscas for this rock painting idea.
Start by placing your trunk on your tree. This will give you a good idea of how big you want your tree to be.
Widen the base to create a very tall and skinny triangular shape.
Now pull some branches out to each side. You want them to go at a downward angle.
Add in a few dabs of black and blend using a slightly wet paintbrush and a very light hand. This will give your drunk a bit of depth.
You can pull some of this black paint onto your branches as well.
Now start adding on your pine needles. Pull short little strokes of green starting at the edge of the branch back to the base of the tree. Make sure to add some along the main trunk too. There would be branches there.
101 Tip: When adding your pine needles be careful to allow some of the brown and backdrop to show through. This will give your tree more dimension.
When your branches are all dry start adding in your decorations.
I added blue, red, and yellow bulbs with a star on top.
I then used gold to create the hooks to hang my bulbs on the tree. This allowed me to have a few hang out over the edges.
Last I added some grass. For this flip your rock so your strokes are pulling up. This will create more of a tip for each of the blades. You could also cover the ground with snow or even gifts!
