Supplies for Painting Zendoodle Heart Rocks

For this painted stone I am using a black extra fine tip, 1M paint pen for the lining and a 3M, fine tip paint pen for my colors. I chose to leave this one with one color throughout but you can easily mix and match it any way you like! I pulled all of my designs from this Zendoodle book if you need more pattern inspiration it breaks them down step-by-step.
