Mandala, or Painted Rocks?
Dots of Paint Transform Ordinary Stones into Beautiful Mandalas
From the site:
Australian artist Elspeth McLean loves color and detail, infusing it into all her works, large and small. Using a painting style inspired by ancient and traditional art, one she describes as “Dotillism,” she uses acrylic paint and a paintbrush to create intricate patterns of intense colors.
If you didn’t know by now… Yes, I looked up what a mandala is.
Personally, a rock is a rock…is a rock. Painted, or not.
This would be and interesting and cheap craft for the kids. Or, you.
