Create dreamy moon rocks using the zendangle technique. This style of rock painting is perfect for beginners and are so much fun to make.
I loved creating these sun and moon zendangle rocks. This style of rock painting is perfect for beginners. I was able to paint moon rocks and add a special message to it.
This rock was painted for an amazing cause. Smillow Cancer Hospital uses painted rocks to spread kindness with painted rocks for patients, caregivers, and staff the hospital. You can follow along with their Instagram account here: https://www.instagram.com/smilowrocks/

Step by step instructions for this moon painted rock
To create this rock you need to decide your large shape first.
For the step by step pictures, I have done a moon. In the video, I created the star. Sketch this out onto your rock. I like to use my 1M Posca pen for this.
Don’t worry about what the inside of your shape looks like. This will be colored in. Just focus on getting the outside how you like it.
I drew my moon and then a few stars connected with lines, dropping a bit.
Then add vertical lines hanging from the bottom of your shape.
I added the word “wish” to my rock. I will be filling it in later so I just used my 3M pen to make the letters wide enough to add the color in later.
Now start adding on your designs. I drew larger dots along each dangle first.
101 Tip: With the paint pens you can stack color so don’t worry about making perfect O shapes. Creating dots works just fine!
Next, add in smaller shapes. Anything goes here! You could add in more stars, rectangles, or diamonds.
When you are happy with your dangles it’s time to add in color!
To give this design some shimmer I grabbed my glitter pens, which have a 3M tip.
Start bouncing around and filling in all your shapes.
If you make a mistake and go over an edge don’t worry! We will be touching that all up in the end.
When you have everything filled in go back around with your black and clean up any mistakes. If you need a finer tip you can grab a Micron pen for that. I love these moon rocks because no two rocks will be exactly alike!
