hOW TO PAINT ROCKS

Clean your rocks in soapy water and lay out in the sun to dry.

Gather your rock painting supplies: paint brushes, pencils, acrylic paint, paint pens, and anything else you can stick to a rock.

Plan your design by sketching it out on the rock with a pencil.

Begin painting your design in with paint.

Add details once your paint has dried.

After your painted rock is all dry, apply a clear sealant to protect it from scratches and moisture damage.
