Stone art ~ DIY



A little girl called, Parisa took these river rocks and tried to make sense out of it. For some reason, those days she was making different Ganesha (AshtaVinayak) this picture came to her mind and she glued rocks with Gorilla glue. The tile she had was smooth texture... it would be better to have a rough texture tile so that glue holds on the heavy rock nicely. With her tile the glue came off after few days. Rough tile would also give a nice rustic look.

It looks simple, but the challenge is in placing the rocks at right place.... earlier she had placed the rocks meant for ear little above and then it looked like Monkey face instead of an Elephant face.

So her tip is to place rocks on tile in whatever object you want to make and leave it aside for couple of days, look at it every now and then and once the picture makes total sense to you, go ahead and glue it. Since Gorilla glue bonds like rock, be careful while using it, so that it does not touch your body or drops in unwanted place. Also you might not be able to undo once glued. Give it a day to bond only then lift it up. When the glue was holding her rocks nicely to the tile, she had placed it on a frame holder.

Now… tell little Parisha… what you think about her fabulous work of art…

    I've heard about Bison brand glue. Gorilla glue is new to me. Any idea where I'll get to purchase it in Dubai? Eager to know (even I've been plnning to do an artwork using pebbles for my balcony garden decor. But not been successful as the gum refuses to bond). Please help.....
