Making painted rocks doesn’t have to be complicated. You can make beautiful easy painted rock ideas just by doodling and creating patterns. This is a great way to get creative on a surface other than paper or a sketchbook. You can use your finished doodle painted rocks as coasters, home decor or garden decorations. And with Aleene’s Spray Acrylic Sealer you can protect your rocks from chipping, fading and keep them protected from the elements.
