Hand-Painted Rocks - Painting on Rocks is a Fun Summertime (or Anytime) Craft for All Ages. It is a fun hobby and if you need a creative outlet, it can be a great stress reliever. It's a fun craft for kids too, they love it.

Think I might be inspired to do a "politicians who look like rocks" series.

Stencil brushes - at least 3 brushes 1/2" in diameter, 1 each for white (initial stenciling of flower), blue (to stencil over the flower after the initial white paint dries), and green (to paint over for the leaves after the initial white paint dries).

Foam paint brushes - at least 2 to paint the black and gold onto the top and bottom half of the rock.

Liner brush - to paint brown lines on basket. You can also use Deco Paint Pens for more control, they are fun and easy to use and come in a wide array of colors.

Black acrylic paint - to paint the background.

White acrylic paint - to stencil the flowers and leaves in white over the black

Golden acrylic paint - to paint basket on bottom of rock

Brown acrylic paint - to enhance the basket

Green acrylic paint - to stencil the leaves

I've used a clear varnish to give some finished rocks a 'glazed' finish.
