PAINTED ROCKS ARE THE NEW THING AND GREAT FOR ALL AGES

PAINTED ROCKS; FUN, CREATIVE AND UNIQUE


I had nearly forgotten about painted rocks until recently when all of a sudden, painted rocks are back and with a vengeance! They aren’t just silly pet rocks anymore with googly eyes, they are something far more sophisticated and creative. Doing it is quite fun and relaxing and great for every age. The possibilities are endless; rock painting parties for the kids, elegant mandala rocks for wedding centerpieces, use them to add some interest to your garden, etc.

This past week, we here at Art Creations have been having an absolute blast painting river rocks! It’s the new thing trending now and we wanted to find out what the deal was. Apparently it’s super simple and inexpensive. All you need are some smooth river rocks you can find yourself or buy them at your local home improvement store! We used Americana Decor paint that we sell in every color you can imagine.

Kendra was all about making kissy fishys with her rocks while I was all about creating my own mandalas which are so fun to do. You can get lost in the serenity of it, it’s really neat! You just create different size dots in various arrangements and colors. I used templates I found on line and just went to town. We finished off the rocks with a crystal clear varnish that really made them pop! Come by the store at Hamilton Place Mall and see for yourself! We will help you get started painting your own rocks!
