Christmas Rocks!

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOnce you start playing with transfers, almost anything is potential medium.  I started doing rocks for garden décor last year, and when Christmas came I  made a batch to stick in my gift baskets (especially those for gardeners or friends who do outdoor décor).

The larger rocks are fun (and very unique) hostess gifts over the holidays.

This broken piece of tile ended up tied to the front of a gift basket. Beautiful in its imperfections.

This rock was a paperweight gift for a coworker.

Very quickly (and without photos) the process is:

  • 2 coats of white gesso on the rock for full coverage
  • a thick coat of gel medium on the face of the transfer image (which needs to be trimmed to fit the shape of the rock)
  • allow to dry several hours (ideally 24)
