Butterfly Stepping Stones

A painted butterfly, maybe two or more. I’ve had these very shabby vintage butterfly stepping stones for sometime now, look at the detail!

Can you imagine adding a piece of cloth over these beautiful stones?

Here you go, Orange, red, yellow acrylic paints mixed together simply brushed over a  wet piece of cotton, pulled tight over a beautiful intricate stepping stone.

Your final color should be a contrasting color dry brushed over your dry stone… Let me know your thoughts?

Another sample below.. Shiva oil stick rub here below ( after the cloth has dryed) Oil sticks take awhile to dry, this one I left out in my side yard 3 day’s to cure.  Heat set as well. Cold wash, short cycle,  orvus soap paste.
