Pretty Yard Art With Liquid Chalk Markers

88,341 Views
A pretty surprise for your garden or potted plants. Make with smooth river stones and liquid chalk markers!
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.

    Unfortunately it's illegal to take rocks off the beach now:(

      @Karen B These were from our campground (with owner's permission), not a public beach. You can also find smooth river rock at your local garden supply store.

    Susan, I need to make some of these with our grandson! What fun and he would have a blast with his Grammy. Of course I would to!

      I've heard of them, but have not tried them yet. I can't wait to get some. Heck I might see if the Walmart next to the hotel I'm at has them and something my cousin and I can paint tomorrow just for fun.

    Wouldn't it be funny to place them back on the beach.

      @Kim Arrington Ashby Sadly, I'm sure someone would complain about that too...

    I wound up buying my river rock and I always painted them with acrylic. Love the glow of the chalk markers.
