Polyanthus Rock

Since I can't garden outside yet I've started on a few flower rocks.

That's so cheerful for this time of year. Brilliant. Could do with a few of those round my garden to cheer it up.

Very pretty rock :o)

Sigh - they are lovely. Would the paint wash off in the garden? Are they 'indoor' stones?

Wonderful one Gillian. Looks great! Exciting colors.

How long does it take to paint a stone ?
Do you need to do the different colours at different times ?

Thanks all! They are sprayed with a waterproof matte varnish and are intended for outdoors, but I usually bring mine in for the winter.
They can take several days as there are many different layers to be added and each needs to dry before I can work on the next. Also depends what painting time I can squeeze in on any particular day, so there are a couple on my table in the kitchen I've been working on now and then for the past week.

might be fun to see how we get on

On my rock group I posted a series of pictures showing owls in various stages, maybe I'll start with those on a blog then next time I do a flower I'll take pictures of the stages of that too. It's easy, anyone could do it!

Oh yeah? What you mean is - anyone with talent could do it!

Wow, Gillian. This is fantastic. I love it....sooo cheerful.

Brilliant..well done

Just adorable!

Very pretty Gillian, would love to be able to paint like that!

I agree with Spritzhenry, when someone has talent which you obviously do, it's easy, as for me I'm envious. Carry on the good work.

Many thanks for all your kind comments! I still believe that anybody could do it though.

28 Jan, 2009

 

Wow - I actually though that was a real flower! Well done you!

28 Jan, 2009

 

That is so pretty Gillian......you are clever.

29 Jan, 2009

 

OMG Gillian you are so talented... this is fantastic....don't believe 'anybody could do it' I certainly couldn't!!! Mine would look like my 5 year old grandaughters efforts, sweet but basic.

Now that is seriously good.

would appreciate if you would teach this in your blog for all of us who are interested....it is really cool !
