Rock Art!

Painting and Crafting with the Humble Pebble
By Denise Scicluna

This book is jam-packed with full-color photos of everything you need to know to create amazing rock art for your home or garden. The adventure begins with the hunt for the perfect rock, smooth is good, but look for fun shapes, rocks that stand up, dark or light color, etc. Next, look at your rock for inspiration - does it suggest an object? Or, you can make "rocks" out of clay. Now, for the fun part: painting! There are dozens of ideas in this book based upon different themes. 

My favorite part of this book is the "Using Your Rock Art" section where the author/artist shows us practical and whimsical applications for your rock art. Cactus, anyone?

This book rocks! (Please pardon the pun.)
