Get Acquainted & Materials

Course Introduction: Rock Design

With great pleasure, I introduce this project guide. Whether you are a home school mom like me, or just an avid craft-er looking for projects, you'll find something to enjoy. Rock design was a fun activity for me, and I am excited to share it with others.

Introduction to Stenciling

This video shows the design that I chose. I used a stencil sheet rather than drawing free hand. You have the option to use something like a marker instead for darker impressions.

Selecting Your Rock

Maybe the most important decision in the whole project is the rock selection. Just as with a canvas selection, your masterpiece is bounded by this choice. Choose with your design vision and fun in mind.

Painting Your Rock

Introduction to Rock Painting

A major decision is choosing whether you will house your project indoors or outside. This choice determines the type of paint you will select.

Painting Your Rock

It's all about materials from brushes to a stick to prop up your rock for drying. You will want to be prepared with your work space and your tools. You may also want to prepare for easy cleanup.

Transferring Your design

Design Transfer: Line, Fish, and Water

The separator line to represent the horizon goes onto the rock with pencil. Both fish and the island mound are penciled in on the rock. Waves of water are transferred as well. 

Design Transfer: Sailboat, Tree, Crab, and Sun

Elements including the sailboat, palm tree, crab, and sun are mapped onto the rock. Design modifications and free-hand decisions are discussed in more detail. 

Painting Your Scene

Introduction to Scene Painting

This most fun part of the rock design process brings your project to life. A review of the best materials is provided. Also, there are no mistakes when it comes to creative projects like this one.
