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.

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

They're all so wonderfully geeky! I love that you did different fandoms for the Supercon - I bet it was really cool for the people who found them.

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

Love them and I love that you were able to hide them at a con where they were sure to be appreciated.

Forget the chalk comment.  I had you confused with another project.  Sorry!

Cool assortment!  Wonder Woman, Robin, and Deadpool are my three favorites out of the bunch, but they're all neat-o and that was a fun, cohesive theme to go with for multiple rocks!

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