Dew Drop Mosaic Rocks

I recently saw some beautiful hand painted mandala rocks and was inspired to try a twist using Dew Drops.

This turned out to be such an easy project, but with really beautiful results.


So let's get crafty:

You will need......

Dew Drops,Tearops, Diamond Dew Drops and Mini DewDrops of every shape and size!
My examples use the following color mixes:  Men's, Spring Mini Dew Drops, Early Dawn and Baby Tear Drops
2 Lb Bag of river rocks from craft store (look for a bag with lots of flat stones!)
Spray Paint (I used Krylon Matte White)
A strong, clear adhesive

And then.......

-Give your rocks a light spraying of white paint (this is optional, but I wanted a white background under my Dew Drops)

-Apply your adhesive to top of rock, spread around using a foam paint brush

-Apply your Dew Drops using tweezers


*Designer's Tip:  Latex Gloves!  These are a MUST-HAVE in my craft room! You can pick up a box at Home Depot or Costco - so wonderful when you are using a lot of messy adhesives!


Experiment with different patterns.

These stones look beautiful in your outdoor planters, or even tucked in with your indoor houseplants - my pastel rock mimics a gazing ball when placed in this container




You could even place several in a crystal bowl as a centerpiece

Thanks for stopping by today - hope you have a crafty weekend!
