When my grandkids were visiting a few weeks ago, we decorated some rocks for the driveway.
They’re super colorful, and we had so much fun!
We set up a folding table in the garage, with lots and lots of old cardboard, and rags and we all wore old tee shirts,
because we were quite adventurous and used acrylic paints with the little guys.
Some of the colors that we picked were quite loud, but beautiful!
When we were all cleaned up and everyone went home, I decide to paint a small rock with some forget-me-nots.
I drew the flower with a Sharpie pen, I guess I could’ve used a pencil to start with , but I was feeling brave that day.
I also used a white paint marker for the centers.
Then I filled in all of the blue and started to work some greens into the background, to make it look like leaves and stems.
Then more with the white paint-marker, and also some pinks and yellows.
Once I had all of the colors the way I liked it, my wonderful handy husband took it outside to spray it with some satin Krylon.
It makes everything clear, and finished and not too glossy! It’s a nice finish for projects like this.
And here it is out in the driveway among the other rocks, that I’m sure will all be painted someday, if my grandkids have any say in the matter!
I have seen some fantastic rock paintings. Mine are a little pedestrian. But, I am still somewhat of a rookie when it comes to rock painting.
Have you seen any that are just amazing? if you can share, I’d love to see some! Send a link or photo!
I may start getting a little more creative and exciting with painted rocks. After-all we had such a great time paining with the kids!
