How-to: Painted Stones

painted stones tutorial (1 of 1)Stones are completely beautiful in themselves, but sometimes you just feel in your heart that you need something with a little more color.

And that’s okay! Maybe sometimes a plain old grey stone WANTS to be painted, you know?

Painted stones make for a great kid craft, but adults can get in on the fun, too. All you need are some plain rocks, some craft or artist’s acrylic paints and paintbrushes, and eco-friendly sealant.

About the Author

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now. Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.
