Just Rocks

These two decorated rocks were the work of my daughter at least 20 years ago. They were heated in the oven, then she used Crayola crayons to decorate them. The colors melted and ran as the crayons touched the hot rocks. Once cooled, they looked like this. They have decorated a shelf in our bathroom for many years. The largest is about the size of an eggplant.

Cool. I never have heard of this process before. I just saw a news report about a lady in Ohio starting a project of painting rocks and leaving them where they could be found. Some had a message, others were just painted. Cool idea.

That is a new idea to me - even though it is at least 20 years old. I have painted on rocks and gourds with acrylic, but the crayon idea is sparking an idea to try some acrylic inks on some. (no oven required!)

I hadn't heard of this process before either. Looks like fun!

What a fun technique. I used to blow out eggs and then melt crayons and drip them into the inside of the egg. I'd save up my small crayon pieces all year so I could make them for Easter.

I'd forgotten all about them until I saw the pics of your rocks.

I've always thought "made up" crafts are so much fun.

Thanks for sharing this one.

I've never seen this either-it's really unusual and striking.
