i used to enjoy doing this as a kid Smiley love the purple starfish! the pumpkin and superman rocks are awesome too: )

i might have to try this for halloween, how cool would a mini painted rock pumpkin patch be?!

Thank you Maxxev.  That is such a very cool idea!  I might have to try that.  My inlaws have a huge pile of rocks on their farm and hey happen to be the right shapes for that.  It would be hard for the kids to take those pumpkins and smash them. Thanks of the awsome idea!

These are fantastic!  What a wonderful variety of subject matter!

You know Morus, I get bored quite easily, that is likely why I have so many different things hehe.  Wink I always have to be doing some different kind of craft to keep myself busy, it seems I can't just stick to one for any great length of time.  Not sure if all crafty people are like that or not? Thank you for you wonderful comment.

So many different styles! These are awesome!

Thanks Brackish Potato.  Smiley

the starfish is wonderful

Thanks Bowlordie, I was thinking of doing more starfish of different colours and kinds maybe, it is one of my favourites.

This rocks so hard and is so flipping amazing I had to sign back in to tell you so!
(and to hit the this rocks ((hee hee, rocks) button!)

You have great talent!

Thanks so much Silentblair, that makes me feel so wonderful.

These are awesome!  It's hard to say which is a favourite, honestly!  I remember painting rocks when I was little, but they were nowhere near this awesome.

Hi Merricat17, I'm sure your rocks were great.  My first successful ones were the mosaic, it took a little work and a few errors before them to learn how to work with the paint and the layers of paint and stuff.  I remember collecting rocks when I was young, never did I think of painting them then though, darn it haha.

ooo!  those are so cool!  I think my favorite is the little striped one.  <3 

Thanks Jillybeans, I like it too, it is so tiny and cute hehe, I think I will make more striped ones with the smaller rocks since it is hard to really paint much on them with great detail.

Those are fantastic!  I remember painting rocks! Smiley  What kind of paint did you use for these??  Great job, I'm not sure which one I like the best though  Grin

Jillybeans, I used acrylic craft paint, I get it for a $1 at the dollarstore per colour plus tax.  It comes in a (4 U.S. fl oz, 118ml) bottle, it is called Crafter's Acrylic by DecoArt.  Thanks for your nice comment.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Beetlejuice ones! That was one of my favorite shows as a kid!

Beetlejuice was one of my favourite cartoons as well!  I also like the movie and have seen it probably thousands of times hehe.  Thank you for your comment.

i LOVE this, and i love how many different things you decided to paint. I used to find sheets of thin rocks and paint nature themed images. I wouldnt mind having a bowl full of these smaller ones as well Smiley I also rememeber getting one given to me(real small one) painted like a lady bug...theyre meant to give you sweet dreams

Hi Tiffi_333, I get bored easily, so I always have to do different stuff.  I'm sure your rocks were lovely, I love nice scenery paintings and nature related items, they are so relaxing to look at.  A ladybug would be cute and everyone could use one of those for sweet dreams for sure.  I am having a hard time finding rocks where I am from.  The ones I have used here came from my own back yard and were dug up while doing some backyard constructions.  I will have to figure out somewhere to get some larger smooth or flat ones.  Thanks for you comment. =0)

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Re: Large Rainbow Paper Beads on: July 16, 2011 07:18:23 PM
Sorry I have not gotten back to you before now. 
I actually used craft paper also called construction paper, it is a thicker type of paper that is coloured on both sides.  I taped many of those together, one of each colour and then made a very long triangle shape as far as I can remember.  So bigger at one end than the other.  I think I was able to get them so large because the paper is quite a bit thicker than most other papers.  I just did some experimenting with the shapes.
Hope this helps.
(I didn't read the comments so forgive me if I'm asking the same question) How do you get the beads to be in those different shapes? Do u use a lot of paper for the beads or do you have a special way of cutting them? When I roll my beads its seems that you can see white (from the backs) show through. How do you get the colors to be so solid? Thanks for the help!
