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.
