Rock Painting Idea: Animal Prints

A fun, easy rock painting project is animal prints.

Animal prints painted on stones

The easiest animal print to start with is a black and white cow. Just base coat a stone with white acrylic paint then add black splotches of various sizes and shapes.



A tiger print is easily painted also. Base coat the stone with orange acrylic paint then add long, black squiggly or wavy shapes. Make sure the black squiggles go in the same general direction. (Switch the orange paint to white and you'd have a zebra print.)

A fun variation of an animal print is to paint hearts on a stone base coated with pale pink.


For an animal print that shines, use metallic craft paint.

You can paint various sizes of paw prints on a stone too and stay within the animal print theme.

With practice you can paint more detailed animal prints on stones.



Have fun and get creative with painted rock animal prints. Small stones can be used for paper weights and larger rocks make colorful door stops.
