Butterfly Stone

Butterfly stone
I'm spending this weekend painting stones. This is my first.
Used acrylic inks and a coat of matte varnish.
They'll be available for purchase at my Etsy shop next week.
Hope you guys have a lovely weekend!
Thanks for stopping by.

It's so, so pretty. I'll have to put your Etsy shop on my Christmas idea list for my family. :) Where do you find nice, smooth stones like that? I've only had moderate success finding good stones like that, depending on where I am.

That is really lovely. Do you use some sort of acrylic ink pen or paint with a brush? The details are so fine and the colors are beautiful! I'll be watching your shop next week.

Gorgeous!!! I didn't think I could use acrylic inks on rocks. Btw, my white FB ink seems pale, do you go over with several coats to get opaque white? I have collected beautiful smooth stones like yours and I almost threw them out last week thinking I don't have time to paint them. Well, here is my inspiration, thanks for making me think of them again, I think I will paint me some rocks :))

I taught a rock painting class this summer and I had a BLAST! I never did it before either! I ended up making a pile before the class to show other painting options for the students, and I ended up selling EVERY one of them! Can't get a more natural painting surface than beautiful sea pebbles. :-)

The stone and butterfly concept is so pretty, they actually draw the butterfly so neatly. I love it.

This is so inspiring! I have a collection of my favorite pebbles in a dish just sitting and staring at me and now I think I know what to do with them. I don't think they will be anywhere near as beautiful as these though :)
