First, fill the large surfaces!

Many people start painting the stones with the small details and then fill out the larger areas. This is usually the wrong approach. We would rather recommend you to do the vice versa.

It is also important to allow the background well dry, before you start with the details.

Small figures and final touches

After the background is well dried, you should paint small figures on it, and with final touches. The necessary time should not be underestimated. The stones need time to dry, which is usually one day.

Until then, you can go over to the details. If your stone painting has several layers, then you must expect a certain amount of time to dry out the different layers.
