How to Paint Rocks – Instructions

1. Start by cleaning any oils, dirt, or residue off the rock with rubbing alcohol on a cotton pad. You can also use nail polish remover in a pinch!

2. Use a fine-tip paint brush dipped in white acrylic paint to brush your favorite quote onto the rock.

3. Once it’s dry, spray it with a thin coat of sealant so it’ll hold up outside until somebody finds it.
