In this rock painting tutorial, I went on a bit of a rant on “who stole my gesso”. Outside of that, you will learn some rock painting techniques that involve collaging the most unusual stamped tissue on a rounded stone.
This isn’t so much of a lesson on how to paint on a rock, but more to experiment with the technique of collage on stone for outdoor use.
oh yeah and you’ll get to see a little colour experiment I did when looking at choosing the “right red and red/violet”. This inspired me to make wall art of just the colour chart! coming soon 🙂
Thank you Cheryl for sending me some wonderful happy mail.

I used an oval flat rock and chose stamped tissue that fit it nicely.
