Rock painting is simple, and everyone can do it. You don’t even need a lot of supplies to get started.  Rock hunting is a lot of fun for all ages. I still get excited when I find a rock to paint! If you live in an area that rocks are not in abundance, no fear you can buy some from rock yards or local improvement stores.

How to Paint Rocks

  1. Clean your rocks in soapy water and lay out in the sun to dry.
  2. Gather your rock painting supplies: paint brushes, pencils, acrylic paint, paint pens, and anything else you can stick to a rock.
  3. Plan your design by sketching it out on the rock with a pencil.
  4. Begin painting your design in with paint.
  5. Add details once your paint has dried.
  6. After your Halloween painted rock is all dry, apply a clear sealant to protect it from scratches and moisture damage.
