Painting Patriotic Gnomes Step-by-Step

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!

Start by laying out your gnome. I often have the hat bent over to fit it on the rock. You can blend a bit of gray into your white beard. For the skin tone I mixed a bit of white in with the cream colored paint pen. Next, line your face to give him a nice big nose.

Now it is time to decorate! You can add in a hand to hold a flag. I use the extra fine tip white to make “stars”. The second design I created stripes in red, white, and blue! Shoes are optional to add as well.

  • If you are using this tutorial to paint a rock, make sure to seal your painted rocks before putting them out into the world!
