How not to use painted rocks?

According to CBC news Canada, painted rocks should not be placed in the parks and forests where wildlife can access them. Using these rocks to decorate home and garden is fun, however, in open spaces animals can mistake them for food and may end up inhaling or eating potentially toxic substances like paint and glitter.

 

How to prepare rocks for rock painting?

Before initiating the painting process, it is important to prep the surface for best results:

  • Choose rocks with smooth or flat surface. You can find them in nature or craft stores also carry them.
  • Wash the rocks with dish soap and let them dry.
  • Seal the rocks with spray sealer or use a brush to coat the rocks. This will ensure the rock doesn’t absorb all the paint and dry your markers off!
  • Instead of sealant, you can also paint the rocks white for a better base for your rock painting.
  • Now that the rocks are ready, use paints of your choice to draw your art. Let it dry between layers for better results.
  • Use fine tip markers, small brushes or stylus to make small details.
  • Oil based paint markers and sharpies are best for writing messages on the rocks.
  • Seal the final product with a coat or two of mod podge or spray sealant to protect your beautiful rock painting art from natural elements.
