My children have been into pirates lately and seem to always be discovering treasures. Since we have more rock collections in this house than we can count, I thought it would be fun to turn a few into some real treasures!
Straight-edged rocks work best for this--they give it a real jewel look. I can easily find rocks of this sort in my kids pockets, closets, on their bookshelves...you get the point.
We pulled out a few metallic and pearlized paints. My children were pretty excited since these are my paints.
