hello everyone Three months back when i had been to goldbluffs beach in redwood i found these smooth oval shaped stones. I collected a few of them and painted upon it. So now whenever i go to a beach or river i do this interesting work of collecting the perfect rounded stone for doing stone painting .
MATERIALS NEEDED :
- Smooth stones
- acrylic or oil paints ( bright colours)
- varnish or gloss
Wash the stones so that the paint will adhere better. Then apply a base coat ( any colour of your choice) . Once it gets dried apply the second coat. Now start drawing the actual picture using thin brush. After the painting dries apply a coat of gloss to the stone.
|painted stones used as paperweight|
These decorated stones can be used as paperweights , fridge magnets by attaching magnets to the stones, to decorate your garden etc. We can paint inspirational quotes on the stones and gift it to someone. So start making your own personal collection of stone creations !!
Have a nice day!!
Happy crafting !!
