Rock painting is affordable, easy, and can be so much fun. The other great thing about rock painting is the fact that there is always an abundant supply of rocks in nature just waiting to be tapped. I have found rocks in the backyard, on hiking trails, and in river beds where we vacationed. No matter where you find them, they are always beautiful. If you can’t find any outdoors, Michael’s craft store sells smooth river rocks packed neatly in affordable little mesh bags. You can also use your coupons found on Michael’s app to save on all your items, including craft paints and brushes. I have painted dozens of rock, but when I saw this excellent scarab rock painting video tutorial by Rachel’s Rocks Canada on YouTube, I fell in love with this completely unique idea.
Materials For Scarab Rocks:
- A smooth rock to use as a canvas
- Craft paint (in multi colores (including gold)
- A pencil (to sketch your image)
In this excellent scarab rock painting video tutorial by Rachel’s Rocks Canada on YouTube, you will learn how to do this quick and fun rock painting project in a few easy steps. You start by making your basic scarab pattern before you add the gold detail. Rachel explains how to paint these every inch of the way.
When you have finished you can coat the entire area with resin, which looks great in the garden at night.
These scarab rocks are so gorgeous, the fact that they are covered in resin really makes them shine.
