Lol.

I had no idea what you meat about painted. That is so cool!

I thought they looked more like a kids' project, sort of abstract at best. drizzled or brushed with paints.

Thanks, Bucky. It's anything from little kid's art to adults who are really talented, and everything in between. Businesses here are into it, offering free services to whomever finds their painted rock with their advertisement and brings it in, such as hair salons or automotive places. It's a way to get people out and about and off their devices, and it's working.

That would be a clever marketing idea.

I don't really remember, but I do know they didn't say that! Actually, I vaguely remember one having the good, old-fashioned peace sign on it.

Kay and kgirl asked to see some pics of rocks my grands and I painted, so here's a few!


This was pretty much a test of my new acrylic paint pens, so I could get a feel for how they work

My granddaughter took this pic of my ladybug before I had the chance to clean up the rough edges around her eyes and give her some much needed pupils.

Aw, Cheryl, they're wonderful! Your grands must have a great time painting rocks with you. My grandma owned a ceramic store, so sometimes when we visited her, we painted little ceramic objects. So much fun

Cheryl, that is simply precious!
I wish I could start something like that here in our new place, but I met resistance previously, maybe I could try again...

Thank you, ladies! GG....yes, it was lots of fun for all of us! I would have been in heaven had a family member owned a ceramics store when I was a kid...or even an adult.

kgirl...one of the perks of living alone...I get to do what I want! LOL

I love them Cheryl!! You've inspired me and I might just try it. Now tell me about those "acrylic paint pens". I'm not good with a paint brush, but pens sound doable.

Cheryl, I really liked the decorated heart on the blue rock. We used to use those acrylic pens for decorating pumpkins, making faces on them, for the kids at school and to decorate the classrooms for the teachers.

Very nice, Cheryl... Looks like fun with the little ones..


Those acrylic pens look interesting.. Is the paint nice and thick?



I have an aluminum butterfly which I sprayed white to color in a Mexican theme but, my daughters acrylics were just too thin for my liking.. The pens would be extra nice if thick enough.. Maybe I could stay between the lines..
