Here’s how to paint some cute snowman/lady rocks. Or to be politically correct should they be snow people or snowfolk rocks?
Directions with each photo.
Sometimes I use a black permanent marker to add features like eyebrows. I find marker will sometimes bleed if you directly apply a fixative. I always add a Mod Podge layer first, let dry and then add the fixative.
I used paint to add the pompom and then had the idea of using actual pompoms. I used E6000 glue to fasten them on after the final coat of Mod Podge and fixative spray.
Both sides had glossy Mod Podge added. Be sure to let the front side dry totally before turning over to apply the back coat. Once dry a fixative spray was used on both sides as well. Once again it is important to let each side dry before turning over.
I’ve made a few more and these rocks will be hidden at different locations (Presqu’ile Provincial Park, Brighton, PEC) so I want them to withstand the elements of our Canadian weather.
I hide lots of my rocks. They are for you to keep or rehide. You can always leave a comment telling me where you found the rocks. Thanks in advance. I love knowing if my rocks are found and where they end up.
Be sure to have a look at my rock projects and see all the other types of rocks I’ve painted.
I love tor rocks Linda. I am interested so just have to find some good rocks starting in the spring. They look like something I could do,haha. Thanks Linda.
I love painting the rocks and then hiding them And then hoping they bring a smile to whoever finds them. Kids love finding them.
These are so cute! I wished that I could fine one of your creative rocks.
Keep your eyes open in your area as there is probably a rock hiding group there. Lots and lots of them all over the country.
So cute! Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party. Pinned.
So cute! What a fun holiday project! Thank you for linking up to Creative Compulsions!
I like these rock snowmen Linda bright and cheerful, thank you for sharing.
Thanks Julie, I’ve made a few more to hide at various places when we go out. It is fun to see if a rock is found and where it ends up.
