Pretty Pastel Paisley Painted Rocks…Wow that’s a mouthful! Now that the weather is better my boys have been spending a lot of time in the back yard and recently they decided to make a collection of rocks… on my kitchen table. But my oldest did find some really nice flat stones and I was dying to do something with them. A paisley motif was the perfect way to spruce up these stones. They could become magnets, or paper weights, or just a fun centerpiece.
My original thought was to find a paisley stencil, but after a trip to the craft store, I didn’t come up with anything that would work for this project. I then found a wonderful tutorial from Art is Fun on How to Draw Paisley <—-check it out! She made it look simple and less daunting than I had originally thought it would be.
I used a set of Sharpie Extra-Fine Pastel Paint Pens and got to work! You definitely want to use a fine or extra-fine tip for this project. You will also want to wash and dry your rocks before you begin. Smooth, flat stones work the best.
