Drawing process - stone painting - phoenix by AlviaAlcedo Drawing process - stone painting - phoenix by AlviaAlcedo
Here is the answer to questions about how I'm working with stones, what materials I'm using and some other things^^

You can see on this photo: a tiny round synthetic brush (№000), a stone ( agate, 4x6cm) and tempera paints.
Do you see the drops of water on a brush handle? ))

<Update>
After painting is ready, I cover it by a special lacquer to protect painting from damage.


Stages of this drawing:
1) sketching on a paper
2) 1 layer by lacquer on a stone
3) lineart with semitransparent layer of paints (usually, it's white, on this painting too)
4) coloring (layer of basic colors)
5) shades and highlights
6) small and tiny details are added
7) Lacquer (2-5 layers, sometimes I cover stone by lacquer on basic colors stage for better protection)

All my necklaces are one-of-a-kind things, I won't make the same one again. Only something in similar style, but not the same.

Thanks for the explanation. I didn't realize that tempera paints were more ideal for this technique than acrylics. This helps explain a lot for me. Your work is so inspiring!
