Warm Soapy Water
1. Find yourself some nice rocks... I like large rounded rocks.
2. Wash the rocks with warm soapy water. Rinse off the soapy water.
3. Let the rocks dry in the sun.
LadyBugs are really fun! Paint the entire rock RED (OR your favorite color)... you may need two or three coats to cover the stone. Next... paint the head part BLACK... with a line of black down the center to separate the two wings. Use the end of the brush... dip it in black... then dab the black spots on the red wings. Add to dabs of white for the eyes. Allow this t dry. Put a coat of varnish over the entire stone. Viola... a Ladybug!
Colors needed... Black, Red (or your favorite color) and White
For smaller stones, glue a magnet on the back. For larger stones, use as paper weights... or put them in your flower garden. Painted rocks make nice gifts.
Find a photo of an animal you like. I like Chimps... I picked this photo of Shawn to paint on my rock. I traced around her face... this gave me an idea of the shape needed.
Colors needed... Black, White, Flesh, Yellow, and Brown
Once you are happy with your painting... paint a coat of varnish over the entire rock.
