Introduction: Making Name Rocks

About: Retired, doing art work now. Great. Have the time and the money to spend doing what I want to do.

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.

    Very nice. Like how you've taken something ordinary and made it extraordinary. Great job!
