Painted River Stones Projects

This is a fun -- and easy -- project for artists of all ages. When the stones are finished, they are beautiful in the garden, as paper weights, or as part of holiday decor. They also make great gifts.

Materials needed: Natural River Stones (these can be gathered, or purchased inexpensively in 30 lb bags at most Hardware stores), opaque paint (see below) brushes.

(Shelley: add Holiday stones, a photo of Beau's hand painting a stone or Cal's hand holding one, or take a photo on Saturday of me holding one or a stone placed somewhere cool)
