In this DIY Rock Painting Tutorial show you every step of the way for this sweet Bluebird that you can use for the Rock Hiding Game!

For this fun project I used a local river stone that is 2.5 x 2″ and then poured a dirty cup of blue and white, and second cup with iridescent orange/yellow fluid acrylic paints to make the body of a lovely little bluebird. After the rock was dried over night I then put in the final details with a paint brush and some regular acrylic paint.

I hope this project brings you smiles and some relaxing time creating a fun project to share!

You can experiment with any pouring mediums–just do them proportionally small batches until you are confident that your combinations will work.

There’s no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I really worry about the possible side effects of heating the acrylic paints and the materials they are made from. I’m also concerned with the possible issues down the line with the paint not forming a good bond with the surface because of the oils preventing proper adhesion.

We all have to weigh the pros and cons of how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful, but there can be consequences we don’t know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. 🙂

The most important things you need to be successful with any of my creative projects are the willingness to learn and to be easy on yourself as you are learning. We tend to be our worst critics and we need to learn to be kind to ourselves.

I love the community that we are building here. We are caring and supportive of all levels of crafters, makers and Artists.

Ray Phoenix says:

Very nice. It’s fun watching you work. You explain things well. And I appreciate the recipe section listing the materials. Good work. I’d like some ideas about miniature landscapes on rocks. I can see a poured sky and foreground, maybe something like desert rocks, sky with clouds, and painted-in cacti? Just a thought; I don’t know if it would work.
