    Pebbles to paint 18th Apr 17 at 10:28 PM
    Hello all, hope someone can help. I want to paint some pebbles for the garden. Never done this but I like what I see on internet and wanna give it a go.
    I understand acrylic paint is suitable for this. I did search a bit but couldn't find pebbles that would be useful and not so pricey.
    Does anyone do this and where do you buy them from?
    Thank you

    As you are not suppose to pick pebbles of the beach. I suggest you go to a garden center and look at the bags of them there.

    Hopefully you have somewhere in your garden that could do with some, you can then pick out the best size shapes for your painting.

    I live about five minutes walk from the beach - have done for most of my life - and we often bring back stones & pebbles, either to paint or use in plant pots. I wouldn't worry about anyone saying anything; noone has ever admonished me.

  • Who do you think came out best in the Corbyn v May battle tonight?

  • Clever by Paxman; subtly testing out "strong & stable" by focusing on u-turns on Brexit view, social care, self employed tax & election date

  • Ps sadly i got in too late to have seen Corbyn, hence why no comment on his performance
