INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Basecoat rock in Titanium White. Paint bottom third in Phalo-Green Yellow. Using your round brush, gently blend Yellow Green Light creating shading. Paint top two thirds in Cadmium Red Hue, leaving a white line dividing the green from red. Blend in some Pyrrole Red creating texture and depth. Let dry completely. Using liner brush, add black watermelon "Seeds". Let dry. Be sure to use a varnish if you tend to put your rock outdoors.
