Fill out the large areas first!

Many people begin painting the stones with the small details and then fill the larger surfaces. This is usually the wrong approach. We would rather recommend you to reverse.

Small figures and final touches

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

Only then can you go to the details. If your stone painting has several layers, then you must count on a certain time to dry the different layers.
