Here’s how to paint some cute snowman/lady rocks. Or to be politically correct should they be snow people or snowfolk rocks?
Directions with each photo.
Sometimes I use a black permanent marker to add features like eyebrows. I find marker will sometimes bleed if you directly apply a fixative. I always add a Mod Podge layer first, let dry and then add the fixative.
I used paint to add the pompom and then had the idea of using actual pompoms. I used E6000 glue to fasten them on after the final coat of Mod Podge and fixative spray.
Both sides had glossy Mod Podge added. Be sure to let the front side dry totally before turning over to apply the back coat. Once dry a fixative spray was used on both sides as well. Once again it is important to let each side dry before turning over.
I’ve made a few more and these rocks will be hidden at different locations (Presqu’ile Provincial Park, Brighton, PEC) so I want them to withstand the elements of our Canadian weather.
I hide lots of my rocks. They are for you to keep or rehide. You can even take a photo and share it with me or the Facebook group mentioned on the back of the rock. Please sign here, up to 2020 or 2021 or use the contact form if you see/find/keep/rehide one of them. Thanks in advance. I love knowing if my rocks are found and where they end up.
Be sure to have a look at my rock projects and see all the other types of rocks I’ve painted.
