I currently live in Maine. It is unofficially the land of fun shaped rocks. I find myself collecting them in buckets and baskets and leaving them about the RV, taking up room that we really don’t have.
So when I was presented with a box of brightly colored liquid chalk markers, I decided to create some rock art.

Begin by painting all of your rocks with the black acrylic paint. Granted, you can leave the rocks their original color, but I went with black for a great contrast with the liquid chalk markers.

Then start drawing away! Naturally, I went with paisley. Seems that I have a thing for both rocks and paisley.

I used florescent liquid chalk markers and the bright colors look amazing against the black.

    @Carol & Ann If you go to her site its says you can add a clear coat of sealant to keep them beautiful for a long time. :)

    I would love to be able to collect my own rocks. What do you about the texture of the rocks?

      @Cheryl Tarkington I used smooth river rock- with little texture. Although, I think you could use most any rock.

    I love this. I am going to fill my fountain this winter this way and put it on my patio. How beautiful.
