The Rock of the Week

This weeks rock is one that has been around awhile. it's named the Metallic heart rock. The heart in the middle is actually made of coated card-stock that can be purchased at Michael's art supply store. It is holographic so you can see a rainbow pattern develop when it is exposed to the direct sunlight. The rest of the rock is painted with interference acrylic which lets the color base underneath shine through with a veneer of transparent color. This sheen can shift from one color to the next, say a pink to a blue. The last coat is a done with something new to my arsenal called Duraclear™. It is wetter in its appearance and when applied, will protect the rock with a durable transparent coat. It should be mentioned that this rock was on display at the Farmer's Market for some time, but did not sell.It was time to bring it back to the studio for some enhancement
