Painting rocks is a fun activity that’s perfect for bonding with your family and expressing your creativity. It’s also a great way to show others how much you care and spread some kindness and positive messages.
The first place to look is Etsy - where you can find a large number of sellers who specialise in providing exactly the kind of rocks you’re looking for. These are specifically chosen by the seller to ensure that you get the best quality and perfectly round and smooth stones for your project - often at a better price than Wickes or similar home improvement stores.
Other options include garden and landscaping stores like Home Depot, Lowe’s and other retailers. These places sell landscape rocks for ponds, rock gardens and other outdoor features in a variety of sizes and shapes.
They can be purchased in bulk or individually and often at a lower price than a pound per stone. Make sure to check the stock in the store and choose a good size for your project.
You can also buy pebbles and river rocks at craft and hobby shops, as well as online. Generally, you’ll want to look for rocks with a smooth face and that haven’t been eroded by water or wind - which is what makes them ideal for painting.
Once you’ve painted your rock, be sure to seal it with a spray sealant to protect the surface from moisture and keep it fresh and vibrant for years to come! These types of sealants are available both indoors and outdoors and there are matt or gloss finishes - so you can choose the right one for your project.
