sharpie art diy

It’s been quite a long time since I’ve made some abacuses out of mtg cards but I think these first two have turned out well. I’ll be doing the other three cartouches from amonkhet but I’m waiting on the remaining copies to come in the mail. I really like the gold beads with these and I will probably use the same beads for the other cards I do from the set.

Let’s see if tumblr will finally let me post a speedtorial without banning it for being “sexually explicit”. Lol so rediculous. 
Anyway, watch the full video tutorial right here!


Artistan Stones 

Stones can be kept as keepsake, a decoration, or a tool for meditative or therapeutical purposes.  Drawing your own design on your favorite stones is a cool & creative way to personalize them and turn the regular rocks from your backyard into chic,decoration piece!

-Stone(s) of choics
-Pencil & Eraser
-Fine-Point Sharpie, Micron Pen, or other permanent marker
*NOTE: Personally, I would use a variety of different sized Micron Pens over any other permanent marker.  Micron Pens come in a greater selection of point sizes, allowing you to draw both fine and thick lines for your design.  More creative range!!

1. Gather materials
2. Sketch design idea/concept on stone of choice (so if you make a mistake you can erase it!)
3. Trace over pencil outlines in permeant marker

The stones I drew here will be for sale soon on my Etsy
