I decided to make this rock for my friends Christmas present. This was very simple to make and quite funny.

Step 1: Paint the Rock
First you will need to choose a nice rock that is not too small to write on. Once you have chosen a rock you should start painting the rock with acrylic paint. I chose yellow paint so it would be very bright. Once you have painted a base of your chosen you will have to wait for the paint to dry before applying another coat of paint. I sped up the drying process by using a hairdryer to dry the rock. I had to apply 4-5 coats till I was happy however this might vary depending how thick you paint.
Step 2: Text
First draw an outline of what you are going to write on rock in pencil. Then fill in the shapes with a different color paint. I fist used a brush to do this but my brush was way too big. I don't have any smaller brushes. So to fill in the letters I used a wooden tooth pick. This was quite difficult and I had to scoop the paint onto the tooth pick. I would recommend buying a smaller brush to paint this instead. But it is manageable with a toothpick.
Step 3: Finished
Now you are finished you can display it for everyone to see. This also makes an awesome gift to give to someone else. Hope you enjoyed reading. :)
