Step 2: Assemble Needed Painting Supplies

I used regular acrylic craft paint since I have many colors available.  Acrylic paints dry rapidly, and are my art media of choice.  You will need brushes, of course, and you can use liners, rounds, flats, shaders, etc.  I use the liner brush for fine details.

<p>Pet Rocks! These are really neat! I'm thinking you should consider selling them on Etsy. Or are you already doing that?</p><p> The black cat in the last picture looks a little too exactly shaped to be a rock, or completely rock. Is it?</p>
<p>Wow! You are an excellent artist! I especially admire the personality you've captured in the cat's eyes! I have never painted before but you've inspired me. Now if I only had some talent like yours....</p><p>Thanks so much for the instructions!</p>
<p>Thank you! With a little practice you may be the next Van Gogh! Just go for it!</p>
Wooooow! Amazing!!!!!!! They look stunning and so lifelike! Taking pet rocks to the next ( next, next, next...) <br>Level!
Those are really beautiful!
I loved, maybe you like the cats jeje, me too, anyway I have aquestion, the rock needs some caracteristics, i mean the shape obviously but the , mmm sorry i'm not speak english, it's something like porosity or something like that. mmm grettings
wow! cat rocks!
Nice work! Do you need any rocks? We have a ton! Just wish I was as talented as you or I would not be offering any.
Thanks for the nice comments...wish I had access to more rocks, they are actually hard to come by where I live! Go figure, eh?
Our back yard has a lot because my husband had big plans but he is very tired now and talks about getting rid of them. We are using some for the retaining wall though. We actually haulded them in. Here a little and there a little. Too bad they are not in Tx . where we will be moving in a few months or year??? We could use them there. Too much stuff to move already. .
Thank you very much.
your painted cat rocks are fabulous!
Thank you!
Wow, they look amazing!
Thanks for your compliment!
amazing!!!! now I need to get out &amp; find some rock's
Thanks, and have fun!
This rocks! Sorry, can't help myself.
Thank you!
<strong>&nbsp;</strong><br> These are great. Personally, I wouldn't place them in full view, but just as something you'd come on unexpectedly in the garden, partly hidden by foliage. (My artistic skills are nothing like yours, but I may have a go at a small toad sometime during the summer.)
A steady hand indeed, nice work!
Thank you!
Very cute! I too have done this and they always make me smile :) Nice work.
