I have recently discovered the enjoyable craft of decorating stones. I will just purchase a bag of stones from Michael's Crafts and simply start.
What can you do with your finished, painted stones? Lots of things!
I will wash and dry the stones. Depending on the shape of it I will pick a picture and first draw it on the stone with a pencil.
I prefer oil painting or acrylic paints since I have some experience on how to use those. I guess the trick is to be patient and wait for each layer to dry before starting to paint the next layer.
Once I've finished painting my design, it's time to seal it! I will use a sealer (acrylic spray for indoor decorations, spar urethane sealer for outdoor decorations) to make sure my art lasts for a long time.
I will share the results in coming days.
