Ombré Rocks for Drop a Rock Day 2019!


I'm super excited to start painting rocks to our 
International Drop a Rock Day 2019, an original idea by Word Rocks Project!

As you may have noticed, the word for this year is HARMONY!

To start celebrating the day, I'm sharing below a super easy tutorial to paint ombré rocks, one of my favorite styles (my art students love it too!).

Supplies needed

Step 1. Paint each half of the rock with a solid color. 
I used the blue blush of the rainbow set.


Step 2. On the flat side of the sponge (the same you use to make up) , put one of the colors on half of the sponge and the other color on the other half. 

Step 3. Use a small brush (the yellow from the rainbow set) to mix both colors together and then add it on the middle of the sponge




 Step 4. Start tapping the sponge near the middle of the rock. First I go up and down and when the colors are mixed, I also sponge the line with light horizontal movements.


To get to the ombré effect that I wanted, 
I repeat the steps 3 and 4 two more times. 
It depends on the quality of the acrylic paint and the rock's porosity too.



Use permanent markers to write HARMONY on them!
