4 Rock Painting Projects - No Drawing Skill Required

You don't have to be an artist to create colorful rocks.

Easy Painted Rock Projects

No drawing or painting skills are needed for these 4 techniques:
  • Mod Podge a design
  • Fingerprint stones
  • Graphic stones
  • Pattern tracing 

How to Mod Podge a Design onto Rocks

For this technique, all you'll need is a smooth rock, your design (I used a napkin) and some Mod Podge.

How to Paint Fingerprint Stones

For this technique, you'll need some stones, acrylic paint, a marker and your finger (or thumb). The idea is to use your fingerprint to create a body and then add simple features with a marker.

How To Paint Graphic Stones

The secret to this "no drawing skill" painted stone is to portion off parts of the rock with masking tape. The only supplies needed are stones, paint, a brush and masking tape.

How To Trace a Pattern onto a Stone

Graphite transfer paper is the special item you'll need for this technique. Although drawing skills aren't required, this technique is more involved than the other three mentioned in this post.

No drawing skills? No problem! You can create colorful rock and stone art using these 4 techniques.
