Easter is the perfect time to get creative and make some colorful and fun easter painted rocks.

How to Paint Easter Rocks – Tips and Tricks
1. Sketch Your Design
Start by sketching your designs in a sketchbook or on a piece of paper. I find it’s much easier to figure out your design on paper first.
2. Draw the Outline on the Rock
Using a pencil, lightly sketch the design outline onto the rock.
3. Paint a Base Coat
With acrylic paint, paint the basic design. Don’t worry, you’ll fill in the details later.
4. Fill it the Design
Once your white design is completely dry, use your paint pens or acrylic paint to fill in the design. Let your rock dry completely before the next step.
5. Add Details
Using a black fineliner pen outline your design and add any details. This final step is what really makes your design pop.
How to Make Painted Easter Rocks – Quick Step by Step
- Sketch out your design on a sheet of paper.
- Outline the design on your rock lightly.
- Apply a base coat of white paint covering your sketch and let it dry.
- Fill in the design with color.
- When that’s dry, add fine detail with marker.
