Xmas patchwork rock

Tutorial by Daphne Birett

There is something about patchwork that makes us feel cozy and warm... This fun design is very easy to replicate. Create a central rectangle using your fine point Black paint pen, and then continue to layer rectangles hiding their corners to create the patchwork illusion.

All you need to make a fantastic patchwork rocks set is within our Rock Painting Art Box (large).

Tutorial by Clare @curious_columbus

Clare used toilet paper roll tubes to make 24 cute little boxes and filled them with the kids’ favourite treats.

Everyone in the family created a Christmas drawing on each box using the Christmas Colours Paint Pens and used glue dots to stick them to a cardboard backing board.

Hannukah "Let's get lit" rock

By Daphne Birett

Paint your rock in a deep blue, and once it has dried draw a menorah using a golden paint pen. You can create the flames for each candle using orange, red and yellow.

Add the words "Let's get lit" if you are into funny rocks, or finish the rock without the quote.

Nordic style Xmas scenes

Tutorial by: Tammy Klingner

All you'll need to create these cozy nordic scenes is your trusty Life of Colour paint pens, mixed media paper (currently 15% OFF), and two simple white frames.

For these Christmas scenes, we used dusky red and pink, muted blues and pops of lime green.

Most of these can be found on our Special Colours, and you can also incorporate some of the lovely blues from our Earth Colours.
