  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:

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