Mandala Monday – How to paint rock mandalas #5- Rainbows by Kristin Uhrig

How to paint rock mandalas #5- Rainbows by Kristin Uhrig is the tutorial for today. You may remember a previous post featuring her tutorials at How to paint rock mandalas #4- Christmas design by Kristin Uhrig that we posted last December.

Here is what Kristin has to say about this tutorial: “In this video, I will show you where to purchase perfect rocks for painting when you don’t have access to rocky beaches or river banks. Then, I will demonstrate five different dot mandala painting patterns on stones using rainbow colors. Dotting tools are from Traveling Kindness Rocks and can be purchased online. They work great!”

Enjoy and happy painting!

Here is what Kristin says about her mandala making:

“I have been on a journey to learn a new painting technique to relieve the stress brought on through a medical crisis with my husband’s cancer. A camping trip resulted in a fine collection of smooth flat, round stones. They were the inspiration for learning to create dot mandala designs on rocks, and then late on canvas panels. I began making tutorials to share this adventure with others, so they could learn from my mistakes as well as my successes. My hopes that others will be encouraged to try something new, and creat beautiful lasting pieces of art that will bring them joy.

Mandala Monday – Montage of Elspeth McLean Dot Painting

Today’s video, Montage of Elspeth McLean Dot Painting, was created by Elspeth herself. Here is what she says about the video:

“For this video I made a montage of all my instagram 15 second videos. They are short and sweet and give unique and varied insights into my painting and technique. Videos are in real time and have not been sped up or slowed down.

I felt that this video needed something fun and funky to go along with it so hubby, some friends and I made this little song.

Adam Dobres- Guitar, bass, ukulele, strum stick, cajon, water drop, finger snaps, tamborine. Paisley Love Rose- Words and Vocals, finger snaps
Elspeth McLean- bird noises, hand whistle, backup vocals, bells, australian clap stick and rattle, sitar, otter noise.
Lulu Love Rose- bells, finger snaps, back up vocals, rain stick.
Taz the cat- meows.

You may remember Elspeth from my posts on painting mandalas on stones: Mandala Stones: How to Paint Mandalas on Stones and Mandala Stones: How to Paint Mandalas on Stones Part 3.

Enjoy this beautiful montage!
