There is something about creating these rocks that makes me so Happy! Lately I have been creating them and giving them out as gifts. Mostly with people I work with, but I spend more time with those wonderful women that I do at my own home so they always pop into my head when I think of making something for someone else.
Using a black rock gives you a very forgiving background. Black pops with the lighter colors and it really makes your images stand out. I have painted on light and dark rocks and I prefer using the dark rocks there is a very satisfying feeling when your done with the rock. I used regular acrylic paint on these. I mix matched indoor and outdoor paint then I put on a coat of Mod Podge to seal the paint. It left the rocks with a glossy sheen that really complimented the colors.
