Bringing A Hamster To Life On Rock

With a name like Rock Artiste, you can guess what fine art is created.

Rocks are the canvas for the Rock Artiste. And this creation is a hamster with stuffed cheeks. The painting makes the hamster rock look soft, but he is a rock. And he is just about the size of a dwarf hamster, measuring 2 by 1.75 by 1 inch.

Rock Artiste states that each rock is one of a kind, 3D art that is crafted in a smoke-free, dog-friendly studio. And numerous animals, insects, garden art and more are available, including custom orders. The finish is weatherproof acrylic and materials to make the hamster rock include: rock, acrylic paint, UV protectant and acrylic sealant.

What inspires people to paint rocks? For Rock Artiste it began as a hobby and physical therapy. Natural rocks have a beauty all their own, but I have to admit that this hamster and other painted rocks are breathtaking, and a real product find.
