Daisy Painted Rocks
Rock painting is a huge trend these days and it’s really no wonder! It’s a relaxing, fun, creative and inexpensive craft habit to have. If you haven’t started already, don’t wait any longer. The possibilities are endless with so many tutorials available for every season of the year, such as our silly shark painted rocks or our grape hyacinths painted rocks and these snowflake painted rocks to name just a few.
NOTE: If you prefer to purchase painted rocks, there’s quite a variety of designs available on Etsy!
You can also turn small painted rocks into fridge magnets like we did we these easy painted rock bird magnets.
Materials Needed for daisy painted rocks:
- Rocks (about the size of your hand, our rock measured approx. 5” long x 3” wide but really any size rock will do)
- Acrylic paint brushes, one larger flat brush and another with a fine tip
- Decoart Americana Multi-Surface Satin paint in Cotton Ball, Canary, School Bus, Sky Blue
A few tips for rock painting to get you started:
- Protect your work surface
- Leave paint to dry fully between coats and when changing colors
Instructions for making these daisy painted rocks:
Paint the entire surface of the rock in Sky Blue using the larger flat paint brush. Leave to dry.
Using a fine tip paint brush, paint a short line about ½” long in Cotton Ball white. Paint an intersecting line to form an “X”.
Repeat these steps to make another “X” shape over top. Paint these same shapes all over the surface of the rock. Go back and add a second coat of paint wherever it’s needed.
Change to Canary yellow color and repeat, painting small yellow daisies randomly in between the white daisies.
With the back end of the paint brush, dip the end in paint and dab small dots in the center of each daisy using the School Bus color.
To fill in the spaces in between, dip your paint brush in School Bus yellow and paint small daisies all over. Dip the back end of the paintbrush in Cotton Ball white and dab to paint the round centers.
Aren’t these adorable? If you have daisies in your yard, you can even write out “daisies” on them and use them as a garden marker, similar to these painted rock garden markers!
