20+ Easy and Beautiful Projects for Beginning Rock Painters

If you are not crafty or don't have experience painting, playing the rock game might feel a little intimidating since you don't consider yourself an artist. You don't have to worry, though, because lots of great artists and craft bloggers have put together tutorials that are easy to follow -- even if you don't have a lot of experience painting!

Here are 20+ of my favorite easy rock painting tutorials that are simple enough that a beginner can follow along and still have a beautiful rock when done! Don't forget to pin this post to use later as well!

  1. What a fantastic collection of tutorials and examples of painted rocks! So much inspiration!

  2. Thank you for including me! I love all of them. It's just a matter of which other ones I want to try first.

  3. After painting what do you seal them with?

    1. Either Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge (and then wait 30 days to cute before hiding outside) or a clear spray sealer like from Rustoleum.

      You can the see the paints and sealers I recommend here: http://www.creativegreenliving.com/2017/10/how-to-get-started-painting-rocks-best-paint-supplies.html

  4. Awesome ideas! Someone shared this page with the Making Danville Smile rock painting group on Facebook, and I love it! ❤️
