How Do You Paint Rocks?

To paint rocks you need soap and water, a towel, a brush and your choice of paint. Decorate the rock with glitter or markers for extra appeal.

  1. Clean and prep the rock

    Wash the rock with soap and water to remove any debris. Dry the rock thoroughly with a towel. Additional drying time may be necessary to ensure the rock is dry before painting.

  2. Paint the rock

    Brush the paint on the rock with even strokes of paint. Cover all sides of the rock in paint.

  3. Finish your rock decoration

    Let the rock completely dry on all sides before adding additional coats of paint or decorations.
