This book holds a mountain of fun for rock artists of all ages! With the instructions inside, creating these critters is as easy as picking up a rock!
Why paint rocks?
Sure, there are lots of other surfaces people can paint on, but how many of them are lying about free for the taking? Many rocks have shapes suggestive of curled or crouched animals, so painting them is actually easier for beginners to master. Experienced painters will enjoy trying their hands at painting in three dimensions, and like sculpture, rock art can be displayed in all kinds of places flat art could never go, including the garden or front porch. When you're looking for a fun and inexpensive activity to share with kids, try rock painting and watch their creativity bloom! All you need to get started are a few inexpensive brushes, a small selection of acrylic paints, and a rock. Before you know it, a furry animal will be looking back at you! It's a transformation that continues to fascinate me even after two decades of painting literally thousands of rock creatures.
