christmas list painted rock

Step 1
Clean your rock with soap and water. This will remove any dirt, debris or smudges that might keep the paint from adhering properly.   
Step 2
Use a paintbrush to apply a layer of paint to the rock’s surface. Let dry, and reapply more coats until you have an opaque layer of color over the rock’s top. 
Step 3
Once the paint is completely dry, begin adding details or words with the fine point paint pens or detail brushes. Use image as a guide. 
Step 4
When you complete one area of the rock, stop and let the paint dry before moving on to another. Let each rock dry completely before handling.
 
TIP: As you work, hold the rock in one hand, nestled in a paper towel (or soft cloth). This will help you avoid smudging your work.
