About the Author

Denise Scicluna is a London-based visual artist who specializes in photography, painting, and crafts. She is interested in the "handmade" culture and often incorporates this concept in her projects and photo shoots.


"Painting rocks has become a not-uncommon craft activity in recent years. This book focuses on decorating rocks with images of cute animals using acrylic craft paint. For each of the 40 creatures, step-by-step instructions accompanied by photographs describe how to create the look pictured. Some of the projects use the rock as a canvas and depict a portrait of the animal, while others treat the entire pebble as the creature itself and encourage the reader to find a rock with a suitable shape for that animal or insect. While the book is written for an adult audience, and an experienced hand may be required to achieve the level of detail pictured, the ideas are suitable for kids, and the instructions are general enough to allow for a high degree of personalization. The final chapter presents ideas for using these rock critters in games, decor, jewelry, and as writing prompts. The content here would make a relatively easy program, so this book may be of use to library staff as well as patrons."
