In My First Rock Painting Book, craft expert Emma Hardy shows how to take a simple rock and transform it into something truly amazing. In Chapter 1, Fabulous Food, the projects include fun fruit, cute pumpkins for Halloween, and a tasty selection of cakes that really do look good enough to eat! In Chapter 2, Creative Creatures, Emma has designed adorable penguins, a sleeping cat, and an elephant, as well as sea urchins, fish, and colorful googly-eyed monsters. Chapter 3, Patterns and Shapes, has some beautiful ideas for simply decorated rocks, from hearts for a loved one through to striking black and white designs. In Chapter 4, Home and Garden, you can make cacti, flowers, a mobile phone, and even a cute swaddled baby. Hunting for the rocks is a fun activity in itself, as you gather an array of different shaped pieces to work with. What you do with your painted rocks is up to you. They make wonderful decorations on a shelf or mantelpiece, and have a practical use as a paperweight, or you may want to pass on your creations as gifts for your friends.
