After the recent eruption in Iceland, some people took to social media to share their experiences painting a volcano, and the result is a series of stunning photographs.

Here are 10 tips to help you get started.


Use a Volcano Brush To Paint Your Stoned-Out Stonework In the photo above, a group of men work on a volcano.

If you’ve never been to a volcano before, it’s probably not your thing.

The process takes some practice, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll find that the results are pretty spectacular.


Create a Volcano Artwork Before you even start painting, it helps to know how to create a volcano artwork.

This tutorial by Instagram user @natemcintyre shows you how to draw the outline of a volcano from a pencil, watercolor or marker.

It also shows you what to look for in a good volcano painting.


Paint the Volcano The process is similar to what you’ll use when you paint a tree or an entire landscape.

But instead of using a pencil to draw out the outline, you paint the whole thing in a watercolor.

This is because you want to keep the overall shape of the volcano as close to a real volcano as possible.


Paint a Volcano Scene Once you’ve made your volcano painting, the next step is to paint it.

This takes a bit of work, but when you’re done, you can see the results on your Instagram post.

Here’s a look at the process.


Keep the Volcano Scene Simple The more volcanoes you paint, the more you’ll need to paint your landscape.

For instance, a single volcano would look better with only one scene.

Here, we’re painting a single mountain.

To create a landscape, you’d want to draw a few more volcanos.

The final result would look more like a mountain than a volcano scene.


Make Your Volcano Art Work for You A volcano is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase, “Stoned-out,” so make sure you take your time.

You’ll be surprised at how well your art will blend in with your surroundings.

Here we’re taking a trip to a lake with a volcano in the background.

We wanted to keep it simple, but still show off the mountain.


Paint More Volcanoes After you’ve finished painting a few of the more unique and unique landscapes, you may want to expand on them.

If your art has more than one volcano, it might make sense to start with a single one.

Here is an example of a simple volcano scene with a lava lake.

It explains the different steps to painting volcanoes, and what you can do to add interest to your volcano art.


Make the Volcano Art Real If you can, make your volcano work for you.

If not, it could be that you need to go back to drawing from a blank canvas, so you’ll want to do some work to get the volcano painting just right.

If that’s the case, check our Volcano Paint Guide for some tips on what to use in your volcano paintings.


Keep Your Volcano Painting Personal You’re probably wondering, “Why am I painting my own volcano?”

Well, that depends on your volcano.

For some, the art is an opportunity to show off a volcano’s power, or perhaps to draw attention to the natural beauty of their area.

If the volcano is more about your family, you might want to consider creating a volcano painting for your kids.
