How to Make

  1. Mark the middle of the canvas in pencil as a guide for drawing out your picture. Lightly draw an outline for the mosque and a surrounding border. To make it easier, draw the design on paper then cut it out to use as a guide for the outlining the main shapes. An HB pencil line should show up on the canvas, or use a yellow or white pencil if you prefer.
  2. Use a gold pen to outline the border over the pencil line. Draw curly details and patterns inside the border as decoration. Leave the gold to fully dry before starting the middle area.
  3. Outline the mosque in gold pen then fill in the middle to make a solid shape.
    Add details to the minarets and on top of the dome. Leave the paint to dry.
  4. Use the end of the gold pen to draw dots for stars in the sky.
