Easy Painted Rocks
Today we are making easy painted rocks! I haven't ever painted rocks before but have always been intrigued by them. I joined up with Craft Lightning for a painted rock challenge as sometimes we just need a little push to try new things, right?
The first thing I did was buy the rocks. My grandfather would turn over in his grave if he knew I spent good money on rocks that I was going to paint. But I was in a bit of a hurry to find the perfect rocks for painting, so Home Depot to the rescue!
To begin, I painted five rocks all white using Americana Titanium Snow white. I used little candle holders from the Dollar Tree as stands when I was painting them. The original plan to was to paint 5 white, mess up four of them and have one good one at the end.
But these were SO easy to make!
I used just a handful of bright colors and also added in black.
I went through with a pencil to draw rough lines, just as a guide to get me started. You can use stencils if you want for your images.
I did the black sections first to create my borders.
With the Americana paint, you only need one coat to get great coverage, that's one of many reasons that I love this paint line from DecorArt.
Then I did the middle image first and worked my way out to the black and white borders.
Each rock took me about 15 minutes including drying time. Again, I was hoping for one good one, but these are such easy painted rocks, they all turned out adorable!
