With the help of a bit of irreverent attitude and a toothy pun, Snarky Shark isn’t taking any more crap from anyone. She’s had a long day, could really use a nap, and still has to go hunt dinner.

  1. Using a 1/2″ flat brush, paint a base coat of Baby Blue on the rock. Repeat as necessary to get an opaque, smooth finish, then allow to dry completely.

  2. Paint half of a pointed oval using Gray and a small round brush to make the shark head. The shape should vaguely resemble a half of a football. Apply a second coat.
  3. Use the tiny round brush to outline the shark in Black, and add a flattened oval shape on each side for eyes.

  5. Use tiny round brush or paint marker to add details in White paint. Add teeth to mouth and small reflection dots to eyes. Then paint “Bite Me” on the point of the rock as shown.

  6. Use the tiny paintbrush if needed to touch up any wonky paint or lines.
  7. Once your Snarky Shark Painted Rock is completely dry, brush on Satin Sealer using 1/2″ flat brush. Let dry completely.

Keep your feisty shark nearby to boost your mood, or spread the fun by hiding your snarky rock for someone else to find!
