How To Paint Ladybug Rocks
When you recreate these Ladybug Rocks, be sure that you wash and dry your stones appropriately so that you have a nice even base from which to work. You may find that you need several coats of paint to achieve the desired coverage.
You can also use your marker to draw the lines and add the spots and googly eyes look super cute too. There is a full tutorial on Lakeshore Learning
