And one thing left on our summer list was "paint rocks." So when we came across the page for turning rocks into Star Wars faces, we were sold.
What a beautiful marrying of two things we love over here....Star Wars, and rock painting!
We decided to take it all down to our community pool, since it was so hot, and we had friends who wanted to try their hands at some rock lightsabers.
It went: swimming, then painting the base color of the face, then swimming, then painting the details in.
This photo features crazy swimming hair and non-descript rocks. One is some obscure Star Wars weapon known only to experts.
Check out my Jabba the Hut (or Job of the Hut, depending on who you ask in my house).
The metallic gold paint made a very nice C3PO.
This guy is a LEGO Pirate. Some detoured from the theme. And some got paint on their little noses.
Being at the pool, of course, was a little distracting, so the actual painting time was sorta sporadic. But it was still fun. My daughter said after, "Well that was a fun experience!" I agree.
Now...what to do with the special rocks....Hmm. They may just have cameos in our Easter garden next year.
