Lin Wellford is the author of five bestselling books and has painted more then 650 rocks during her career as a "rock artist." She lives in Green Forest, Arkansas.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-5-All shapes of hand-sized and smaller rocks are used to create a wide variety of clever and artistic projects. The ideas are grouped into 10 different categories from rock fish through rocky roadsters and rockosaurs. Sharp, full-color photographs placed on a white background and black-and-white, step-by-step directions make the creation of each project clear. These pictures show not only the steps involved, but also which brushes to use, how to hold them, and how to create sharp lines. Captions tell how to mix paints and apply them. Great care has been taken to make each project artistic, imaginative, attractive, and easy to accomplish. Children, camp counselors, teachers, group leaders, and parents looking for challenging and satisfying crafts will find this book outstanding.
