Introduction: How to Paint Comic Characters on Rocks

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:

I have a computer monitor in my art room, so it's easy to use that as my reference soure as well (but not necessary).

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.
