- 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 a bright lime green hue. The dinosaur is royal blue, oulined in black, and I stamped my “Old School” message. If you love hiding kindness rocks, this is a great one, because the bright colors and simple message make it easy to spot – and fun to find.
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.
Don’t forget to add #PaintHappy to your painted rocks, and join in the fun in the new Paint Happy Rocks community! Share photos of your easy rock painting ideas with me here:
