Ohhhh...how cool!  And you used chalk to color on them, I'm guessing?

Nope, just layers and layers of the same kind of paint. Just different colors.

What did you do/use to make the rocks black?

I painted them with regular charcoal-colored craft paint. I think it's the Apple Crate brand that AC Moore sells.

this is awesome!  I am thinking that little boys in particular *not to be sexist* will love them. Most rocks I find are full of pink and butterflies and the guys might not respond to that.  also, they are just really well done.

Thanks so much! I was kind of tickled on Saturday...I left the Batman rock across the street from the convention center (behind our hotel) in the morning. By the time I left the con in the late afternoon and came back the same way, that rock was already gone. Smiley

I live in Virginia and I went to Raleigh (NC) Supercon last weekend. I left my superhero-themed rocks scattered down there near the state capital last Friday evening and around the con last Saturday. The GL rock was the last one to be left, in a hall light fixture near our room at the Sheraton. Smiley When we checked out on Sunday morning, it was gone.

The backsides are labeled with the #craftsterrocks tags.

I've got Spider-Man, Batman, Star Wars Rebels, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Star Trek, Robin, the TARDIS, Black Widow, Deadpool, Nightwing (hard to see this in the picture), and Phoenix. Most of the rocks had some glow-in-the-dark paint added to them.

FWIW, I started painting mine last night. I actually started with some extra Testor's model paint but didn't like the coverage so I switched to a couple coats of various craft paints from Michael's (no primer). I don't want to head out in this heat and get clear coat, so I'm using to Modge Podge both sides tonight. I'm in Virginia and we are HOT here, so it won't take long for these to cure. Smiley

I love this craft challenge!  I have a black rock that someone painted that I love!  What do you use to paint the rocks with?  Do you clean them at all before you decorate them?

This idea is great to spread the word about Craftster!

We usually use acrylic paints, the kids have little tubes of them, but the bottles work just as well.   Sometimes I use markers for finer details or writing quotes.  Then I seal with Krylon Crystal Clear Gloss Spray.

Before painting, we wash with dish soap and hot water.  Just let them dry in the sun.  Fortunately, we're in Arizona, so this happens very quickly. Cheesy

Fun! I have a ton of rocks in my front yard from the beach so they're nice and smooth...perfect for painting!
