The other week I bought a bag of Caribbean beach pebbles from Home Depot, and we have been having so much fun painting them! Janie had a blast covering her rocks with every possible color of paint, while Gresham painted little lighthouses on his. (I should take a picture of the lighthouse ones!) Gresham suggested that I make some owl rocks. We have been in the owl mood lately after going to a local nature area to take photos of barred owls. They really are amazing creatures!
I used acrylic paints for this project. The rocks were covered with a layer of dust, so I washed and dried them before painting. I drew the owls with pencil first before painting them.
After the paint was dry, I sprayed the rocks with a coat of varnish to protect them and keep the paint from chipping.
This one is supposed to be a barred owl, like the ones we saw at the nature preserve.
And this one is a snowy owl.
The rest are just sort of whimsical, LOL. 🙂
