If you’re looking to start up a hobby in rock art, which has gained popularity a lot in recent years, look no further than Rock Art for Beginners which will show you simple techniques and easy projects for transforming stones into art. My biggest question when picking up the book was how do you know what rocks to look for so I was pleased to see there was an entire chapter on selecting and prepping rocks. The designs are split up by Mandalas (these are some of my favorites!), Patterns, Animals and Nature. Definitely a few I’d like to try making in the mix here! Far more goes into this beyond just grabbing a rock and painting, and no wonder why these all look so amazing! The patterns are all so colorful and vibrant.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
