Prepare your black paint, and with your brush, paint over the uneven edges outside the outer half of the circle. With your blue paint, paint around the ring’s edges and overlap the black color to create a cloudy effect. While the blue paint is still wet, mix it with some black paint for a transition effect, creating the night sky’s effect.

Add and mix a little bit of white paint with your blue paint to get a lighter blue shade. Paint the lighter blue on the sky to create a brightly lit atmosphere of stars.

And there you have it! You can a painted rock for your  dedicated to your cat. Or for those who don’t have cats, just a beautiful painting on something that isn’t often considered a canvas. Later, you can probably paint more designs on your rocks. Or paint more cats in different positions enjoying the light of the moon!
