Easy Flower Painted Rock Tutorial for Beginners


Hi Rock Painting Loves, it's Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing my favorite flower painted rock tutorial ever.  

Bright Spring flowers are uniquely stunning and beautiful, and translate perfectly on rocks.  

The best part about this flower painted rock is it's like finger painting for grown-ups, so it is perfect for beginners.

A few flower painted rocks in the yard or hidden around town will be better than an Easter egg hunt.



If you are inspired by this rock painting idea and decide to make your own, won't you share? I'd love to have you share your painted rock creations on the I Love Painted Rocks Facebook Page. If you are willing to let us feature your rock on this website, you can submit your unique painted rock creations here.

Flower Painted Rock Step 1: Background

Begin by painting the entire rock black.

I typically clean my rocks and then paint a dozen of them all black...then they are ready to use as needed!

Flower Painted Rock Step 2: Begin Pink Flowers

Pour paint on your pallet in a variety of bright colors (at least two shades per color flower you want).

Use a round #4 or #6 brush, depending on size of flowers desired.

A round brush is perfect for flowers and leaves because it's a natural stroke to create these flowers.

Begin with painting a couple blobs in the darkest pink close together as the center of the flower.  Then add petals in "C" shaped blobs around the center, building the flower bigger as you go.

Spring Floral Painted Rock Step 3: Add Colors to the Flowers

While the dark pink paint is still wet, add blobs of coral, light pink and yellow paint.  

Look closely at this picture, it's very random and basic.  

The petals do not need to touch the flower.  And be sure to leave some black peeking through here and there.

Spring Floral Painted Rock Step 4: Blue Flowers

Repeat the process for blue flowers.

Start with blue in the center and then build outward.

Add white and yellow highlights to the flowers as well.

Spring Floral Painted Rock Step 5: Add Leaves

Add more flowers, but save room for leaves.

Add green leaves around the flowers with a 2 stroke brush pattern.

Press the brush down then slide it while lifting off the surface.

Add light green and yellow to the leaves.

Then continue to fill in flowers and leaves until filled.

Spring Floral Painted Rock Step 6: Spray with Clear Sealer
