Introduction: Making Name Rocks

Picture of Making Name Rocks

A fun technique I came up with is to put names on rocks.  Small, hand size or egg size rocks are used, but you can use any size you like.  I cut the names out of styrofoam on a hotwire, and add tiles made from styrofoam as well.  Make a name-rock for your favorite person, they can be decorated in various ways, add jewels, beads, or any other item you like. I've even grouted the "tiles" with real tile grout. That gives an additional dimension to the art project.
