Item #1: ROCKS!
Of course it is obvious that in order to paint rocks, you need a stash of rocks. We have narrowed this down to three types of crafter and written a page for each. What one are you (or will you be)?
1. Big, bulky and mixed
We at RockFun like to buy a big sack of pebbles. You get around 50 various sizes for about £5. We enjoy getting all different sizes, shapes and broken ones. If you are a fan of big and bulky then check out this post.
2. Smooth, flat, shapely and refined
There are people who sell lovely, perfectly formed craft rocks. You may like the fact that you can buy a perfect, smooth, shaped rock without sorting through any dirty, broken ones.
3. Make your own rocks!
Did you also know that some crafty people actually make their own rocks to paint. They really do! Why? Well if you are the type of artist that sells your creations then you may want all your rocks to be uniform in size and shape. By making your own, this becomes easy!
