Painting Rocks

Painting Rock Tips

It can be difficult to figure out the best supplies and techniques so I thought I’d create a guide based on my experience. I also have linked my Rock Art Handbook with over 30 tutorials in the full post, swipe up!


Smooth rocks - avoid rocks with a wax film over them (you can also get rocks from Amazon) Paint - I prefer acrylic paints in bright colors. Paint brushes - Small brushes are a necessity Paint markers/pens - Another option if you struggle with paint. (links in the full post)
