Picture of How To Paint Comic Characters on Rocks

I did two characters for this instructable: Spider man and damsel...any number of characters can be used, of course, depending on your choice of favorites. This was really easy to do, just need to pick a rock or two, draw the characters on with marker or pencil, and paint! See my previous instructable of painting animals on rocks here:

After all paint is dried, coat with varnish, water based, if you intend to display rocks outside. They would make surprise decorations for walkways, patios, gardens, flower beds, etc.
