    1. The first thing I do is always sketch out my design on the rock using a pencil.
    2. Next I add the color using these paint pens. NOTE: to make your colors more vibrant, add 2 or more layers of colors but be sure to let each layer dry in between coats.
    3. Once I’m satisfied with the colors I outline my design with a in black to make the design pop. I’ll also add any additional details.
    4. For color mixing, like what I did for Frankenstein, I’ll add one paint pen color on top of another and then use a damp paint brush to blend the colors together.
