Then with the help of a few colorful craft supplies and the tutorials in Rock Art Handbook, you'll be on your way. Author Sam Sarles shares her favorite tips and techniques for transforming the humble rock into a work of art. Discover how to get great results with puffy paint, acrylics, oil pastels, alcohol inks, gelatos, art pens, embossing, stamping, and more.

Anyone else into rock painting? It's a thing. Painting them and leaving them for people to find. The top left I painted and left behind on a beach, the others I found on two different beaches by two different artists. 🎨

tdrosebud I've never painted any, but I have found them before. I generally will re-hide them, but I did keep one once. 1y
Karisa Oh! I love spotting those! They show up from time to time in the park and sides of the walking path here. So cute! 1y

Did some more rock painting today. Jack's head is a bit wonky, and my paint marker wasn't cooperating when doing the book lover rock, but I still think they're cute. Still trying to get through Rage, about 60% through. By the way. I own the tagged book, it has wonderful techniques, who knew there were so many ways to decorate a rock. #Scarlathon2020 #TeamHarkness #LittenListen #October20in4 #OutstandingOctober

This was a fun intro to rock part. Painting, hiding, and, ultimately, finding rocks is a recent craze. It's very popular where I live in NY state now. I recommend this book for anyone interested in rock art; or anyone looking for a fun craft to do with their kids. Check this book out. I received this book from #NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. My complete review is on #Goodreads

Maewyn We find them at work quite often. I guess an arts and crafts store is a place they might be appreciated. 4y
