- Acrylic Paints

- Paint Palette
- Permanent Marker
- Mod Podge or Craft Glue
- Stamps and Archival Inks (optional)
For this super star rock, I used orange, yellow, black and white acrylic paints. To place your star on your rock and to make sure you’re happy with its shape, you may want to sketch this design in pencil onto your rock on a painted background. Once you’re happy with your lines, then start painting! You can cover all pencil lines (and pencil errors) with new paint.
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.
