Here are some painted rock designs you can experiment with! Try making unique designs with odd rock shapes!


  • Mod Podge (Sealant)
  • Smooth Rock(s)

Step 1

Paint your rock however you want! I used bright neon colors and splashed them onto the rock.

Step 2

Wait for the rock to dry. The image below shows my finished paint job. I went for a colorful, abstract look.

Step 3

Once the paint is dry, use pastel(s) to add details or write a cool message

Add a layer of Mod Podge to the rock to seal the paint and pastel.

You are all done! You can decorate your yard or your house with these cool rocks!
