Rock Garden Bugs
 
SUPPLIES:

several rocks, different shapes
paint brush
stylus or toothpick

acrylic paint shades:
pink, red, black, brown, antique gold, antique white, mauve, pink, orange, and several shades of green

DIRECTIONS:

Wash the rocks and allow them to dry completely. Simply paint the rocks to resemble different animals and bugs, such as ladybugs, butterflies, bees, frogs and turtles.

Ladybug

Use a flat oval shaped rock, paint it red and let dry. Paint a black line down the center of the rock, and paint a black oval on as the face.

Bee

As with the ladybug, use a flat oval shaped rock, paint it antique gold and let it dry. Paint the ends of the rock with antique white for the wings. Paint a criss cross pattern on the wings with antique gold. Use brown to paint on a few strips and dot on two eyes with black paint using a stylus or toothpick.

Butterfly

Odd shaped rocks are good for butterflies. Paint the rock pink and let dry. Paint two strips up the center to make the thorax. Use a stylus or toothpick to randomly dot on spots and create squiggly lines in different colors such as mauve, light blue, and light green. Dot on black eyes.

Frog

Paint a larger oval shaped rock with light green and let dry. To paint legs and head, use a darker green and paint "C" shapes. Use the end of a paintbrush handle to dot on large orange spots on the frog's back. Optionally, you can shade around the spots with a different shade of green. Use stylus or toothpick to dot on black eyes.

Turtle

Use a smooth, large rock for the turtle. Paint rock light green and let dry. To make the shell, paint ovals over 3/4 of the top of the rock with a lighter shade of green. Use a yellowish green to fill in the areas around the ovals, creating the shell. Dot on two black eyes.

Flowers

Paint any shaped rock with dark green, sponge on a lighter green. Use mauve to paint on the flowers, use pink to shade the outside of the petals. Shade the center of the flowers with light blue.
