All Things Welsh Competition

The celebration of All Things Welsh will be a special celebration for Taff Rocks. After all, Taff Rocks has its home in the heart of Wales.  And ... What better day to celebrate it than the 1st of March! Otherwise known here, in Wales, as Saint David's Day, our patron saint.

The Taff Rocks Painted Rock Garden & Trading Post

The Trading Post and Rock Garden is something we at Taff Rocks HQ have been 'bouncing around' with since Taff Rocks went 'live' in August 2018.  The idea is still in its infancy, see below for what we need to move forward.

The concept is a simple one. A place where rockers (rock painters), hiders and seekers can go to leave, exchange or take a rock or rocks then share them, as usual on the groups Facebook page and ultimately, re-hide, take traveling or take home and love. Not just Taff Rocks, but rocks from any rock group.

If an individual doesn't paint rocks, then they only have to visit the Trading Post / Rock Garden to locate a rock and take traveling and share.

Posca Pen Pastel Colours Review

Pretty much all or almost all Rockers (rock painters) have heard of the Posca Pen. And if you haven't, here have you been?   

This will be an exceptionally short review on the PC-5M (1.8-2.5mm) medium tipped pastel pens, that came to me in a pack of eight.  These you can find on Amazon or in any good arts and crafts store.  

Let's have a look at these:

Flysea Painter Pens Review

Flysea Acrylic Painter Pens, on the face of it, seem as good as the more established pen. But with regular use, let's have a look at how they fair. They come in a box of 18 colours and can be purchased from eBay and Amazon, at pretty reasonable prices.

Klued Creations Acrylic Paint Marker Pens Review

As one of the Admin team on Taff Rocks, I feel it is my 'duty' to check out the pens, paints, and markers that are out there as well as the new, up and coming ones, after all, Taff Rocks is also up and coming.

I recently acquired a pack of 12 Acrylic Paint Marker Pens by Klued Creations available from Amazon for £12.99. Even though the Amazon page states they will work on most surfaces, I have only used them on rocks

Word Rocks

Raise your hands all those that don't paint rocks because they "can't draw" or are "no good at art"?   

Not my words, but these are just two reasons so many give for not painting rocks. This idea you might have need not exclude you. We can all take part.

You will have read, in most places, especially here, that you don't have to be a Van Gogh or a Picasso. Painting and drawing come with practice so why not consider simple little words? These can bring happiness and smiles to finders and seekers just as much as a landscape scene on a rock.
