Do-Over Painted Rocks OR How To Re-Paint Rocks and Stones

Oops...the painted rocks shaving cream experiment did not turn out like I expected.

The shape and texture of these rocks were too good to toss aside. 

Time for a do over!

I just covered the shaving cream rocks with solid white acrylic and re-painted them.

Painted rocks are very forgiving. If you don't like something you've painted on a rock or stone, just cover with a few coats of white acrylic paint (or any other color) and start over.

Don't be afraid to experiment with rock painting!

Don't you think these are much better?



  1. Yes you did a great job. Love to look at your work. Thank you for sharing

    1. Thanks for the compliment and letting me know you enjoy seeing my work, Margaret. I have so many painted rocks and tips to share and it's nice to know they're appreciated.

  2. Have you tried Unicorn Spit on rocks? I love these.

    1. Thanks for the compliment, Sandi. No, I have never tried Unicorn Spit on rocks and thought you were pulling my leg. After doing a little research, Unicorn Spit would be quite interesting on a rock. Have you used Unicorn Spit on anything?
