What's the best way to seal painted rocks?

Lisa S.PamelaWilliam


Over the years, my boys have painted rocks for Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc. They are super cute and scattered around my house. I'd love to seal they so I could put them outside in my garden. Any ideas?

    Yes, spray with several coats of polyurethane. Do not use oil poly or varnish. Both have a yellow tinge and will yellow over time.
