The kiddo asked, so we made these fun Marvel Avengers painted rocks over the holiday break, bringing a favorite movie to life with just a few paint brush swipes!
Marvel Avengers Painted Rocks
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we adore making painted rocks with the kiddo. Whether she’s making a handful for her friends, we’re making story rocks, or we’re just crafting together, that’s a time I really enjoy. Plus, painting rocks is fun. So, when she asked for a set of Marvel Avengers painted rocks to go with one of her favorite movies, we had to do it.
We got all of her favorites in before we found something else to occupy us (lunch) and I would say we did a pretty good job making these easy super hero painted rocks in just a few minutes. If you’re ready to learn how to paint Avengers painted rocks, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Super Hero Painted Rocks
- Of course you can find rocks outside but, be sure not to take any from protected natural areas – look to your own yard, where you know the owner won’t get peeved. If you run into trouble finding the best rocks, you can always grab some awesome rocks ready for painting here, a local hardware store’s garden center, or even at a local landscaping company. Sometimes you can even get them by the bucket-full. However, I do not recommend getting your rocks from your typical craft stores because they often have a coating on them that will keep the paint from sticking.
- Before you start, make sure your rocks are nice and clean and also dry. You need them to be bone-dry before the paint will stick in most situations. While you’re waiting for your rock to dry completely, you can lightly sketch your design onto the rock with a pencil. It helps me a lot to guide my drawings on rocks.
- Acrylic paint works best for me, but you can also use paint pens/markers like these here, artist pens, gelly roll pens, markers, highlighters, etc. Some of these methods will require a second coat to get a nice, bright color, but all of them will work.
- Take a few minutes to seal your rocks after painting them. Whether it’s a spray sealant or a craft sealant like Mod Podge, sealing them is going to have the fantastic effect of keeping your rock art from washing off in the rain or fading in your kitchen, depending on what you plan to do with your painted rocks.
