I have been mildly obsessed with paint pouring this Summer, so I wanted to try it on rocks to see what the results would be.  Crafting is all about experimenting.  Sometimes you have a winning project and sometimes you have a big fat craft FAIL, but it’s all about the creative process.

 

Here’s what you will need to create Paint Pour Rainbow Rocks:

 

 

Here’s how to create Paint Pour Rainbow Rocks:

 

STEP ONE

 

Place plastic garbage bags or plastic drop cloth down on your work surface.  Layout the bakers rack and place the rocks on top, leaving space in-between.

 

Set out 14 plastic mixing cups and then place an equal amount of DecoArt Pouring Medium in each cup.

STEP TWO

 

Add Americana Acrylic Paint to each cup.  For this particular project, I used a primary hue and a pastel hue of each color in the rainbow – ROY G. BIV – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.  Mix the paint into the Pouring Medium with a craft stick.

STEP THREE

 

Start out by pouring the lighter color over the rock, making sure to cover the entire surface of the rock and then pour a smaller amount of the darker color.  Continue layering the light and dark colors until you are satisfied with the effect.

Set the rocks aside to dry overnight.

STEP FOUR

 

Once dry, hand-letter each letter of the word RAINBOW, one letter on each rock with the Tombow MONOTWIN Permanent Marker.

That’s it!  Quick and easy in just 15 minutes (not including drying time, of course!)  A fun accent for any room, a colorful garden accent or a secret message to leave somewhere in your neighborhood to be discovered later.  Painted rocks bring joy to everyone, so get creating today!
