Making Stuff: Painted Bones and Rocks

by This is Carrie on June 15, 2011

During our southern Utah camping trip, we took part in a long standing tradition at the cabin of painting rocks for the rock garden.

While some art was inspired by the shape of the rock, other art was painted using the rock as a blank canvas.

Our “hunting family” cousins (who have no aversion to dead animals), found a cache of deer bones that grossed me out until I attacked one of the jaws with paint and a little Dia de los Muertos calaveras inspiration.

You consider us your white trash family, don’t you?

We find a lot of weathered old bones (natural causes deaths, I believe…) of deer, elk and more at our cabin. What a terrific idea to paint them in this fashion! I see my summer tinkering project now! :)
