How to Make Textured Stone Birds and Bunnies

Collect a bunch of different stone birds and bunnies. With the exception of the teal bunny on the top left, all of these figurines were found at the dollar store. The two teal bunnies originally looked as shown beside the list of needed supplies.

Start by painting the figurines in either Trellis Grey or in Grey Wool. This will help cover up the bright colours underneath and will give a more realistic stone appearance when complete. Two coats should do the job.

I decided to paint a few of the figurines in the Trellis Grey and a few of the others in Grey Wool. This way you get to see how both will look.

Mix one part white chalk paint to 2 parts baking soda. These measurements are flexible. Basically, you want the paint mixture to look like thick buttercream icing.
