Stacked Stone

I made some stones a while ago, planning to use them on the exterior of one of my buildings. I used handmade paper clay.

Today I set up a little rock quarry and went to work painting my stones. Casey makes stones with egg cartons and colors them with several different shade of paint. Thanks Casey for your great tips!


There is a place, called Pebble Junction, near where I used to live in Sanford Florida that sells an incredible variety of stone. If you want stone for your landscaping in Florida, you have to go buy it.

Here is my mini version of stacked stone for sale.


In Birmingham, there is stone everywhere. I'm going to go find some stones for the second section. I could buy some at Michaels, but I want real stones from Alabama.

I'm planning a short trip this weekend to gather some tiny rocks from the river at Peavine Falls in Oak Mountain State Park.



Hope you have a lovely day!
