The Art of Stone Painting Review

The Art of Stone Painting: 30 Designs to Spark Your Creativity – by F. Sehnaz Bac, released January 18, 2017 by Dover Publications. Expert stone painter and archaeologist Sehnaz shows you how to turn ordinary stones into gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, art pieces. Presented with large, full-color photographs and text, her 96 page paperback has instructions for 30 handmade projects– simple to advanced. Use stones decoratively, as keepsakes, paper weights, and door stops. You can even turn pebbles into jewelry! Her detailed designs are very appealing. She favors bold colors and vivid designs. Tools and materials include brushes, acrylic paints, paint pens, acrylic inks and varnish. Sehnaz shares her process from beginning to end. You will learn how to find, choose and prepare stones for painting, stone painting and design techniques, sealing and protecting painted stones. Finished stones are water resistant. To clean, just wipe with a soft cloth. Sehnaz sells her work on Etsy. Inspired to paint your own collection? I am! Get your copy below.
