Those are great! I love the detail on the rabbit. Does it matter what type of rock or what type of paint you use?

i love your rocks they are beautful. I think I will make one, but on a sad note.... my guinea pig died last month and we had to bury him in the garden but this would be so nice to make to put in the garden with him.....he was my first pet.... I loved him....my husband and i weren't allowed to have pets as children so we got one in college so we were terribly attached....

the author recommended something called patio paint, but it was awful so I just used craft acrylics and sealer, and she also recommends river rock because they are smooth.

we do those with kids at our day camp... but we paint animals/symbols (like the totem power stones) on them, with paint pens and those little polished fountian rocks from home depot. They make as many as they can and give them to all their friends. Everyone gets involved, it's addictive!  Smiley

Thanks, my friend has a bunny and she trained it to use a litter box, so amazing to me, I never realized how smart bunnys were, and hers hates carrots! She has 7 cats and the bunny is the boss of them, its weird seeing the bunny hanging with the cats.
