Rock Painting How-To Guide

  • 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.

5 Helpful Rock Painting Tips

  1. Acrylic paint is the most common paint to use when painting stones, but you can also experiment with alcohol inks and even watercolors too.
  2. I use a paper towel or an old towel for getting excess water off my paint brush and cleaning them between colors too.
  3. The best way to make your colors to be vibrant and “pop” is to apply a base layer of paint to the top of the rocks.
  4. Highlight your painted rock by outlining your artwork with a darker color or black paint pen. It really makes your artwork stand out!
  5. It’s a great idea to wait 24 hours before sealing your painted rocks and 48 hours for paint pouring rocks. Sealing your painted rocks too early can cause your paint to bleed.
