For this decorative idea, you will need the following acrylic markers: medium edding 5100 acrylic marker in silver, fine edding 5300 acrylic markers in black and white. First of all, wipe the pebbles with a damp cloth.
Before you start, activate the markers as follows: shake the marker with the cap on until the mixing ball inside can be clearly heard. Next, carefully pump the marker up and down until ink appears in the nib. Test on a piece of scrap paper. For the silver-coloured whale, first add your design to one half of the stone together with the fins.
Now take the acrylic marker fine in white and draw narrow lines close together to recreate the whale’s baleen (see picture below).
Let the ink dry thoroughly before drawing the eyes using the black and white acrylic markers.
You can decorate more stones for your composition in the same way – jellyfish or starfish, for example. If you feel like it, you can even let your painted pebbles “swim in the sea like proper sea creatures”. To do this, cut out shapes of waves from blue and turquoise-coloured paper and use the white acrylic marker to add further decorative touches. Once everything is dry, you can position the sea creatures on the waves.
