Overview

Listen to the call of the wild!

Bring home the excitement and wonder of exotic creatures from all over the world with Painting Zoo Animals on Rocks. Renowned artist Lin Wellford gives easy-to-follow directions for creating your very own rock menagerie.

You'll learn everything you need to know to paint the mane of a majestic lion or the dramatic black and white stripes of a zebra. Each of the 11 projects includes patterns, step-by-step photos, and tips for choosing the best rock. Simple techniques help you achieve amazingly realistic details, from the brightly colored feathers of a toucan to the baggy skin of an elephant.

Also in this book, Lin will show you her special technique for combining rocks to create animals with even more dimension. In just a few easy steps you can create a long, graceful neck for a giraffe or the curved trunk of an elephant.

You'll also find beloved petting zoo critters, including a fuzzy baby chick, a playful piglet, and a cuddly lamb. With Lin Wellford, painting your own special zoo is as easy as picking up a rock.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wellford's previous books, including Painting Pets on Rocks, established her reputation as a clever specialty artist. Using ordinary, smooth landscaping rocks, she paints amazingly realistic animals that appear almost three-dimensional. This collection of step-by-step projects for wild and domestic zoo animals introduces a technique for adding necks and heads using pebbles and wood filler, thereby increasing the repertoire of poses that the animals can assume. This is a delightful work to include in public library crafts collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
