Painted Angel Rock Tutorial

In the video below, I will show you how to take a stained glass themed picture of an angel and transfer it onto a rock.  After it's been transferred, you can use acrylic paint pens to color it.

To make this rock, or one like it, you will need the following

How to Get a Picture of Stained Glass Angel from your Computer (for free)


1.  Paint your rock with a base coat of white acrylic paint two or three times, letting it dry in between coats.

2.  Find a picture you would like to transfer onto a rock by using the following method here...  On your computer, search the term 'stained glass angel'.   After you get the results, look directly under the Google Search box, hover over 'IMAGES' and left click.  You should see a variety of images of stained glass angels that you can make your selection from.

3.  In another window, open up a WORD PROCESSING document.

4.  Go back to your stained glass angel image search.  Did you choose an angel picture you would like to transfer to your rock?  I thought this one would be nice for a future rock that I will paint...

5.  After you choose your image, hover over the 'IMAGE' you have selected.  RIGHT CLICK on the image, and select 'COPY IMAGE' by clicking on it.

6.  Go back in to your blank WORD PROCESSING document, and RIGHT CLICK again.  This time, select 'PASTE'.  Your IMAGE will appear.  Print out your IMAGE* so you can proceed with the next steps.

*It does not have to be printed in color, but use the picture's colors as a guide for applying your paint or marker to the rock when you are ready.

7.   Place a piece of your Saral Graphite Transfer Paper on top of your rock which has been painted with several coats of white paint (make sure the white paint is dry).  Place your printed image on top of the transfer paper and secure it to your rock using Scotch tape.  With a pen go over the lines directly on your image to transfer it to your rock.  Make sure the graphite paper is facing the right way.

8.  Watch the videos below to learn how to finish your stained glass-themed rock painting.
