How to paint a rock

1. Clean the landscaping rocks or beach pebbles. Scrub the stones that you want to paint. Dirt prevents the paint from sticking to the stone surfaces. Wash small rocks with warm water, mixed in a bucket with detergent.

4. If you want to use painted rocks outdoors, you need a paint that withstands the harsh weather. Enamel paints designed for boats are good choices for rock painting. Acrylic paints are an excellent choice for creating beautiful stones to accentuate interior decorating.

5. Allow the paint to dry completely, leaving the painted rocks to dry overnight of for a few houses in shade.

6. Spray clear sealant on painted works, making sure to coat every detail on the surface. Apply several coats of sealant on outdoor rocks allowing them to dry. A sealant protects the paint from the environment and keeps unique garden decorations looking bright.
