There are some submitted painting tips for Kindness Rocks. If you have any, feel free to share and I will add to this list.

  • Spraying clear glaze tips. Joy Houp Chester County
  • Priming the rocks with white or black (myself)
  • Use a light gray or light colored fine tip marker to do your outline and then paint. (Myself)
  • Allow paint or markers etc to dry before applying clear coat
  • Get a 5 gallon pickle bucket at Firehouse Dubs for $2. Money goes to local fire fighting funds (myself)
  • Surplus Sales get bigger landscaping rocks by filling a 5 gallon bucket for $5 (myself)
  • Paint positive sayings on rocks Tiffany-John Gimmell of Bristol Rocks (Virginia)
  • For fine details, add water to acrylic paint to make it smoother and use a fine tip paint brush. Lisa Cornwell Greeneville
  • I use a quality paper plate and use the lip to test the constancy. I will also make it very watery for things like fog or sunset. 😊 Lisa Cornwell Greeneville
  • Styrofoam is waterproof but that paper with the waterproofing actually reacts much the way a rock would, soaking in the paint a bit. I didn’t like the Styrofoam because of that… I also have plastic pallets I don’t use. 😊 But these are only tips, everyone works differently. Lisa Cornwell Greenville
  • 50¢ craft acrylic paints from Wal-Mart work fine. Lisa Cornwell Greeneville
  • We used everyday acrylic but sealed them with polycrylic. They held up for a few months, but some of the colors faded. Steven Cregger Bristol Rocks (Virginia)
  • Some rocks are very porous and absorb the paint on the base coat. I often wet the rock and then spread on the base coat. Or mix water with the paint to base coat. Darlene McCliesh Greeneville
  • We use paint markers, acrylic paints, and a sealer if we leave it in a spot it could get rained on. Tiffany-John Gimmell of Bristol Rocks (Virginia)
  • Cheep paint bushes and sponges do the trick. Tiffany-John Gimmell of Bristol Rocks (Virginia)
  • A bag of rocks from lows is like 12 dollars for 100 rocks!! Tiffany-John Gimmell of Bristol Rocks (Virginia)
  • Anything you want to paint, after all it’s all about fun and believe it or not its relaxing to paint
  • We started out with riddles where we hid rocks (thought it was fun and a little different). Marika Pyle Hamblen & Jefferson County
