Summary

Summary

Hey kids! You can create amazing creatures, incredible toys and wild gifts for your friends and family. All it takes is some paint, a few rocks and your imagination!

Decorate your room. Make doorstops or bookends. Or just paint something for fun. Easy-to-follow pictures and instructions show you how to create:

Rockasaurus! (Who wouldn't want a dinosaur for a pet?) Stone buildings perfect for creating your very own city Rockburgers and other fun foods--you wouldn't want to eat these, but they sure look tasty Cootie bugs and racecars (Which one is faster? You decide!) Realistic lizards ready to put in your family's garden (gasp!) or the terrarium in your room Flowers that never wilt--and never have to be watered Weird eggs! (Could be aliens, could be dragons--who knows? Hatch them and find out.) Teddy bears cute enough to cuddle!

You'll learn how to draw each design on a rock with a pencil, then paint the details in whatever colors you choose. You can make each project look just like the real thing or wild or wacky. The choice is yours--and so is the fun!

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-5-All shapes of hand-sized and smaller rocks are used to create a wide variety of clever and artistic projects. The ideas are grouped into 10 different categories from rock fish through rocky roadsters and rockosaurs. Sharp, full-color photographs placed on a white background and black-and-white, step-by-step directions make the creation of each project clear. These pictures show not only the steps involved, but also which brushes to use, how to hold them, and how to create sharp lines. Captions tell how to mix paints and apply them. Great care has been taken to make each project artistic, imaginative, attractive, and easy to accomplish. Children, camp counselors, teachers, group leaders, and parents looking for challenging and satisfying crafts will find this book outstanding.-Kathryn Kosiorek, Cuyahoga County Public Library, Brooklyn, OH (c) Copyright 2010.
