-Clip art from magazine or book
-medium camel hair brush (soft bristle)
-general purpose brush
- paint for embellishment
Hold clip art and stone against a lamp. The stones silhouette will aid you in positioning your clip art.Once positioned, place clip art and stone down on a surface and trace around the shape of the rock for a cutting guide.
Cut along the tracing.
Brush gel medium or glue to the back of your clip art. I chose gel medium because it's flexible, ready to brush on and doesn't need to be diluted.
Place clip art on stone and adhere. Use your fingers to gently smooth out creases and air bubbles under the paper. Paint embellishments or add more layers using the same method.
To varnish gently rotate the varnish bottle to mix the lacquer. Avoid shaking since this will create a multitude of air bubbles. Pour varnish into a separate container and use a flat tipped, soft bristle brush to apply varnish. Scrape the bristles against an edge between coats to eliminate air bubbles on the finish. Allow to dry and apply at least 5 coats for a tight seal.
