Oh, that's a neat idea!  I painted a few rocks when I was young, but I just left them in my rock collection...  Roll Eyes  I think that I will put them outside.  Now that I think about it, that would look pretty cool!

I painted a few tiny rocks into ladybugs and I painted my mom an elf girl on a rock about 8 inches high and 6 inches wide. I found the idea from the July 2003 edition of "Lin Wellford's Painting on Rocks" The magazine has step by step instruction projects and I belive that she has a few books out as well...
One word of caution: When you are spraying on the clear coat-watch out for runs in the paint if you hold the can too close. It happened to my mom's elf when she was coating it...

My family is big into boy scouts (thats what happens when youve got boys and tomgirls running a muck in a very small house-- lets get the kids involved in other activities!!!) and Im a geologist who is constantally bring rocks home. I painted this one rock into a sleeping fox all curled up. He is in the fox patrol so I put his name and group number thing in it. He really liked it. Yay for painting rocks for your parents!!!

I've never painted a rock before but now I have the sudden urge to paint one! haha! Would you wash the rock with something other than water before painting?

wash the rock with water and detergent to get the dirt out. then the rock has to sit out for a couple of days.

I'll rinse the rocks with water first, then scrub them with a toothbrush and toothpaste. The toothpaste is gritty, so I've found that it works really well. Just make sure you use an old toothbrush, or someone will be wondering later why it tastes funny... Wink
