FAMILY FRIDAY Painted Rocks via https://feltmagnet.com/crafts/PAINTING-AND-DRAWING-ON-STONES Supplies: Smooth, Rounded Stone (this can be found in nature or at a local craft store) Sandpaper Pencil, Chalk, or Ultra Fine Sharpie Marker Acrylic Paints Mod Podge Sealer Directions: 1. If you picked up your canvas from the outdoors, you'll want to make sure it's nice and clean. Wash it off with warm water and soap and pat it dry. 2. Some stones have rough patches on them that will make painting a little more difficult. You can sand your stone down with sandpaper, starting with 100 grit and moving to 150 and 220 grit until the patch is gone. 3. At this stage, you're ready to draw your design onto the rock. It might be good to try practicing your design on a piece of paper beforehand to perfect it. When you actually draw your picture onto the rock, you can use a pencil, chalk, or ultra fine Sharpie marker. 4. Now you're reading to start painting! Be patient and move from the biggest parts of the design to the smallest, letting each coat dry before moving on. You can use a hairdryer to dry the paint faster. 5. Once you've finished painting your design, it's time to seal it! Add a coat or two of Mod Podge to make sure your art lasts for a long time.
