Tropical Ferns Paradise Painted Rocks

Tropical Ferns Paradise Painted Rocks
Do you paint rocks?  I love painting rocks, they are the perfect canvas...they are so available (unless you live in Fayetteville, NC--no rocks there!)  They are smooth and ready to paint.  Makes a great kids craft or craft to do at a birthday party.  I decided to paint some rocks that help remind me of summer sun, tropical vibes and the sweet beachy theme!
So gather supplies:
Rocks (I like them about the size of a smooshed canteloupe)
Apple Barrel Paints
Paintbrushes
Fern stencil
Start off by base coating the rocks with white or cream paint.  I don't wash my rocks at all.  Just 2 coats of paint, drying in between.
I had some stencils laying around from a past project and thought I'd use them on the rocks.
Just place the paper on the rock and use a stencil brush to stipple the paint on it.
It's a bit messy but still looks great!
For the second rock, I decided to just free hand on the ferns, curls and leaves.  It think it was easier than the stenciling on a curved surface.
Let the leaves dry for a few minutes.
Then use a small round brush and some black paint and add some lettering on them.
Relax on one.  Paradise on the other.
Then let them dry and spray with a clear coat.  Now they are ready to hide in town somewhere...place on the front porch or add to your fairy garden!  I just love painted rocks!  Fun for rock hunting enthusiasts to find and photograph!
