Rocks are like fingerprints–no two are exactly alike–which makes them a great art base. Patty Donathan, a prolific rock painter, claims the most ideal rocks have been weathered well and tumbled and rounded by a water source like a river, creek, lake or ocean. Look for rocks on beaches, dry lake or river beds. However, always be aware of your surroundings. Taking rocks and stones from state and national parks is forbidden. Don’t let this be a deterrent to rock painting as a whole. Rocks are everywhere, and looking for them is half the fun. If the rocks are dirty, clean them with warm soapy water. Scrub them lightly with an old toothbrush, rinse them in cool water and pat them dry with an old towel.


Paint with inexpensive brushes. Depending upon the hardness or softness of the rock, the surface will wear down a brush quickly, making expensive brushes a waste. Look for brushes that are durable and have long bristles that hold a lot of paint. Consider buying a stiff brush with a wood handle. They are generally inexpensive and work well when painting on rock.

Selecting paint

Acrylic paints have improved through the years, and finding quality paint is not as difficult as it was in years past. According to Lin Wellford, a professional rock painter, if the plan is to showcase your art outdoors, use an acrylic patio paint. Patio paints are formulated specifically to weather well in the elements and are designed for porous surfaces like rock, clay pots and stepping stones. If you plan to display your art inside, any acrylic paint will work. The consistency of the paint should be neither too thick nor too thin. Add small amounts of water to thick paint until it reaches a good painting consistency. Practice painting thin lines on scrap paper or newspaper to check your paint’s texture and thickness.


There are a multitude of sealers to choose from. Choosing the most effective acrylic sealer will ensure the art piece lasts a lifetime. The use of an acrylic spray gloss enriches colors and provides satisfactory protection if kept indoors. Choose a spar urethane sealer if the finished rock painting will be displayed outdoors. Although spar urethane is used primarily for wood, it also works well as an outdoor paint protector for rock paintings. Spar resists cracking, peeling and yellowing and protects against water, sun damage and salt air.

Make Your Own Goop For Household Cleaning

Awesome Recipe By
From"Though "goop" is not usually synonymous with "clean", this DIY Goop is great for cleaning tiny crevices, such as keyboards. Compressed air is not always the answer, especially when it blows tiny particles deeper into the gaps surrounding the keys, but goop will do the job."

Supplies needed -

1 measuring cup
1 cup warm water
1/2 tsp Borax Laundry Booster
1 mixing bowl
5 ounces clear or white school glue
favorite food coloring
1/2 cup water

  1. Add borax powder to 1 cup of warm water and stir until completely dissolved.  Set aside.
  2. Kids can help too! In the bowl, mix glue (clear or white) and add 1/2 cup warm water with several drops of food coloring.
  3. Be sure to blend well until smooth.
  4. Pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture, and as you mix, watch the shape start start to form.
  5. The mixture will be wet and gooey.
  6. Using your hands, keep kneading the goop, until it is firm and feels dry.  
  7. Discard excess liquid in bowl.
  8. The more you knead the goop the firmer it becomes.
  9. Goop can be stored in a ziplock bag or airtight container for an indefinite amount of time.
  10. This stuff is great! Kids have fun cleaning with it, too.
  11. Once the cleaning is done and goop is grungy, it'll be time for a new batch.
