When we think of art and oil and acrylic paints we probably think of paintings on canvas, but there are a wide range of ‘canvases’ which can be used not just the traditional kind. You could practically name just about any material and chances are you could paint on it if you wanted to. Rocks, stones and pebbles also have a number of uses, other than that pertaining to their natural environment or garden landscaping or earth filling. So why not use them to paint on? This isn’t anything new – rock (and cave) painting was all the rage thousands of years ago but in our little creative world we have found more reason for painting on stones, rocks and pebbles. In this modern age we have let our imagination flow with gorgeous ideas.
Take a look below - here are a few pics of some creative stone paintings which I found on Pinterest. There are many more gorgeous, sweet, cute, intricate and colourful designs out there but these are just a few for you to enjoy for now.
