Lady Bug Painted Rocks

lady bug rocks paint red black white, child children kid craft art

Such a simple little thing to do with the kids on a boring summer afternoon. Rocks should be cleaned with an old scrubber and dried overnight. Use acrylic paints and start with covering the rock with black paint. You may want to make two coats allowing to dry completely in between. Follow the simple design from the picture and paint the areas red where indicated and dry. Top with a clean black line down the middle of the back and add black dots on the back also. Add a black dot in the center just after where the red starts on the back. Add two white dots on the face for the eyes. Let dry. When it is all dry coat with two coats of polyurethane to seal. Would make a great gift for the wee ones to give to parents and grandparents, aunts and uncles. Can be placed back in a garden or used as a creative paperweight.
