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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

Thanks Brackish Potato.  Smiley

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

Those beetlejuice rocks are probably the coolest painted rocks in the whole world. They're all really awesome, though.

While all of them are amazing, I have to say that Beetlejuice is my FAVORITE. Not many people remember or appreciate the cartoon! All of these are well done; I'm also fond of the Superman one : )
