I started painting the rocks. I used the technique that was described as the leopard technique. It is where you dot the rocks with one color then fill in the reset with another, then wash with black. I used Woodland Scenic Burnt Umber (C122), Yellow Ocher (C1223) and Black (C1220). I think I would have saved money by using cheaper paint from Michaels or something but it was the first time so I was following instructions. I did water down the paint to make more of a wash. Tell me what you think.
