Sharing today a lovely activity that me and my little one did. I found some lovely smooth stones in the flower pots in our balcony, and immediately wanted to try this amazing craft whch i had seen on the net. Used acrylic paints for this. Gave two base layers to the stone in which my daughter helped for the most part. Below is how they looked after two coats. The best part of acylic colors is that it dries fast!!
Then we painted the different designs depending on the shape of the stone. We made the ladybug, flower, owl, love print, fish, rainbow, bird , some free hand designs . You see some of the beautiful abstract paintings, that done by my daughter..so proud of her!!
After all the stones were painted, applied a layer of mod podge for the lovely glossy finish!
We painted the stones in batches and this activity was our night time ritual just before sleeping, which my daughter looked forward to from evening itself. I would make her drink milk while painting. As soon as I come from office she would want to do stone painting and hence demanding milk ;)
