Learn how to paint a pretty pink flamingo on a painted garden rock. The bestpart is it can be completed in under 15 minutes! Quick and easy crafting at it’s best! One of the reasons why painted rocks are so popular is you can just have fun with it. Painted rocks are also a super fun craft to make with the kiddos over the Summer.

We all know how bored they can get after a couple weeks out of school. You can make searching for the rocks part of the experience. My kids loved gathering rocks or sea shells when they were little. Start by finding a rock that is the size you want for your garden or wherever you are placing it.

Supplies:

  • Rocks – Look for a large one to fit the transfer you are using
  • Chalkology Paste in coral
  • Chalkology Paste in Black Velvet
  • Born To Stand Out Flamingo Transfer
  • Small Squeegee
  • Clear Sealant
  • Paintbrushes

STEP 1.

Remove any dust or dirt from the rock. You can just use a wet paper towel.STEP 2.

Paint the rock with a couple of coats of your base paint until it is covered completely and let it dry overnight.

STEP 3.

Place your transfer onto the garden rock ensuring you are happy with the placement.

STEP 4.

Add the chalkology paste to the transfer using the small squeegee, ensuring it has good coverage. As the rock has bumps and grooves in some places, you really want to add enough paste to cover the transfer.

Let the painted garden rock dry for a few hours and then use a clear sealant to protect it in the outdoor elements. For more craft and home decorating ideas I'd love it if you would check out my blog https://ourcraftymom.com/
