- Acrylic Paints
- Varnish (I prefer the paint-on type, but spray varnish works fine too)
- Paint Palette
- Permanent Marker
- Mod Podge or Craft Glue
For this design, I used a background of acrylic paint in an aqua blue color. A few black lines with a fine brush form the basic shape – or, use a fine tip paint pen or gel pen for this part! A small stylus will let you add white dots, and I also added some light purple for a bit more color. It’s quick and easy, and think of the smile you’ll bring to someone’s face when they make a wish on your painted rocks.
Don’t forget to add your hashtags to the back of your rock so others can share it and join in the fun! A Sharpie marker works great for adding messages, just be sure to brush it with a light coat of Mod Podge or craft glue so that the varnish doesn’t smear your lettering. For more detailed instructions, please check out my How To Make Painted Rocks post. And the most important rule of rock painting is to relax and enjoy it – don’t worry about perfection! We are always our own biggest critics, so you have to remember that a bright and cheerful painted rock will make anyone’s day, whether you’ve been painting for a week, a year, or a lifetime.
