How to Paint a Cute Mason Jar on a Rock


One of the local rock groups I participate in on Facebook is doing a monthly rock painting challenge where we have a theme each day and if members paint that rock, hide it in the community and post a picture of it on Facebook they win an entry in a drawing! I love all the different rock painting ideas and it takes the pressure off to think up things on your own.

Today's challenge rock theme is "mason jar" and after I totally failed and painted the ugliest mason jar ever, I pulled up a drawing tutorial on my favorite YouTube channel for drawing: Draw So Cute

After following along with her tutorial, I ended up with an adorable mason jar rock to hide for the challenge!

Notes: For best results, use a light colored rock with a flat surface for painting.

While the tutorial teaches you how to draw an entire adorable peanut butter and jelly family, I just followed the first part of the tutorial using an extra fine black Posca pen to draw the Jelly mom but without the peanut baby.

Once that was done, I colored her in with more Posca extra fine paint pens and sealed it with clear spray sealer before hiding it in the community.

Don't forget to color any parts you want to have remain white with the white Posca pen because more rocks look darker when sealed.

If you love this painted rocks project, don't forget to share it!
