Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0891347208, Paperback)

Transform ordinary rocks into amazing little houses and cottages. You don't have to be an artist to experience the fun of this simple yet exciting craft. Lin Wellford revitalized the art of painting on rocks, and her imaginative and innovative use of rocks and stones as art material continues to attract new fans. This book offers a range of projects, from basic cottages that any beginner can master, to A-frame chalets, farm houses, barns, churches, shops and storefronts, Tudor houses and even elaborate Victorian style mansions. Among the most popular projects are Wellford's 'gnome homes', which feature thatched roofs and can be further enhanced by the addition of wood filler to create dimensional eaves. A handful of acrylic paints, a few assorted brushes, and a pencil are all that is needed to get started with this intriguing craft. It's a perfect low-cost art activity for families, children's art classes, senior citizen groups, Scout troops and more. Paint one, or create an entire village to display. Add snow to the roofs and wreaths to the doors to transform your houses into a Christmas village. Because rocks are hard to break, these charming creations are likely to become treasured heirlooms, to be passed down through generations.
