INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: If you want the rock to stand up find a rock with the bottom half that is flat or broken off.

  1. Begin by covering entire rock with Americana Premium Carbon Black. Apply Titanium White in the upper lefthand corner in a circular motion to create a moon. Blend a small amount of Carbon Black and Titanium White to create shades of gray for the moon.
  2. Use Americana Premium Titanium White and a #0 liner brush to outline the witch and this will give you a idea of how the witch will work on the rock.
  3. For skin tone use Americana Premium Burnt Sienna and Titanium White. Blend Burnt Sienna in small amounts to control the shade. Apply to face and hands. For the broom use a blend of Burnt Sienna, Titanium White and Carbon black.
  4. For hair and facial features once again use Americana Premium Burnt Sienna, Titanium White. Create multiple shades of brown by blending the two colors. For the pumpkin purse use Burnt Sienna for the handle and Vermillion Hue for the pumpkin. Blend in Burnt Sienna to the Vermillion Hue to create a darker shade of orange to give the pumpkin depth. Highlight the pumpkin with small touches of Titanium White.
  5. For the dress use Americana Premium Dioxazine Purple for the skirt and blend Titanium white to give the skirt highlighted creases. For the corset portion use blended Titanium and Carbon Black to give the top a look of it being laced up. For the leggings use Titanium White and Phthalo Green-Yellow applying in horizontal lines. Complete by using Pyrrole Red for the witches shoes.
  6. Tweak witches body to fit appropriately on the rock. Use Americana Premium Carbon Black to cutout any portion of the body and repaint. Apply Cadmium Yellow Hue to the sleeves of the shirt. Apply Vermillion Hue dots on the sleeves if desired. Finish shirt off with Titanium White and then blend Carbon Black to create shading for collar.
  7. Complete by applying a varnish!
