Rock painting is a fun and creative way to add a unique touch to your home or outdoor garden.

Here are some tips for creating beautiful painted rocks:

1. Start with clean, dry rocks. Make sure the surface of the rock is free of dust or dirt before you begin painting.

2. Prepare your paint colors beforehand so that you can easily access the ones you need without having to pause in the middle of painting.

3. Use a sealer after you finish painting in order to protect your design from fading or chipping off over time. Be sure to read the instructions on any sealers before applying them to ensure they are compatible with the paint used on your rock.

4. Experiment with different techniques like shading, highlighting, and layering colors for an entirely new experience each time you pick up a brush!
