Rock and Roll with Father's Day


Give Dad a rockery this Father's Day! A decorated stone each year from each member of the family (including you, Mum) will build into a meaningful, heartfelt collection of appreciation over time.



Art and Craft Supplies

smooth stones
white paint
brush
fine black marker
coloured markers


Method

...whitewashed stones...

Clean stone and coat with white paint. Try a wet paintbrush for a whitewash effect



...basic design...

Mark out your design in fine black marker



...a bit of colour...

Colour with other markers



...dated and who its from on the back...

Don't forget to write the year on the bottom of the stone. You might like to write down who its from as well.



Other

Protect your wee works of art with a coat of white glue, varnish or nail polish

These stones have a vintage look to them, achieved by a whitewash paint base and cheap kids markers give nice muted hints of colour.


Have fun!

:)
