Painting rocks is a lot of fun and you’d actually be surprised what you can create if you give it a try! That’s how I started painting rocks and they make fabulous gifts to give to friends!
I’ve had so much fun painting and giving away my painted rocks. People go nuts over these and use them for paper weights or to lay on a shelf to give it a pop of color and interest.
It’s amazing how you can transform an old river rock into something absolutely stunning and that’s exactly what she shows us how to do in the attached tutorial.
Most of us have rocks laying around, somewhere in our community or you can purchase rocks inexpensively at a craft store. A lot of times you can find good ones down by a creek bed.
This is a very inexpensive gift idea! These give an illusion of being real… I took a double when I first saw these!
I have never taken art lessons and my artistic abilities have gotten better from all of the practice I’ve gotten. It’s all about just jumping in and trying something new!
I was really surprised that I had any artistic abilities, but was rather pleased to see that I could actually paint something that looked like what I was attempting to paint…just goes to show that you never know until you try!
I painted a big butterfly rock as a gift for a friend of mine who had a birthday just recently. She keeps this rock sitting right beside her front door and it looks pretty cool where she put it.
Watch how Anett Zander paints this beautiful butterfly in her step by step tutorial and give this a shot…what do you have to lose?
