Tips to Make Painted ROcks for Valentines
- Definitely hunt around and see if you can find rocks outside but, be take care not to sneak off with any from protected natural areas. Just look around your own yard, where you’re certain the owner won’t get upset if a little rock is missing. If you have trouble sourcing rocks, you can grab a package of awesome rocks ready for painting here, look around at a local hardware store or garden center, or even at your local landscaper’s yard. Sometimes they’ll sell rock to you by the bucket-full. However, I don’t think you should plan on getting your rocks from any of the craft stores because they will often be sealed with a coating hat could keep the paint from sticking to the rock.
- Before you get to painting, make sure you get your rocks nice and clean – and also dry. You need your rocks to be absolutely dry before applying the paint or it may not stick. But, pencil will stick so you can go ahead and sketch your design on the rock before it’s completely dry.
- Acrylic paint generally works the best when I’m rock painting, but using paint pens/markers like these here, artist pens, gelly roll pens, markers, highlighters, etc, is definitely allowed. Some of these different paints could require you to apply a second coat, but they will work.
- I always seal my rocks after painting them. Whether you give them a coat with a spray sealant or a generalized craft sealant like your typical Mod Podge, sealing the rocks will keep your rock art from being washed off in the rain or fading in the sun.
