Skull Rocks
Author: Amanda Formaro
  • Smooth rocks
  • White acrylic craft paint
  • Paint markers (I use Decoart glass paint markers, you can use regular markers if you like)
  • Paint brushes
  • Sealer
  1. First make sure you wash and dry your rocks. They need to be completely dry before you paint them, but a hair dryer or a fan can help this along.
  2. Paint the rocks with white acrylic craft paint. I don't bother painting the bottoms.
  3. When the paint is completely dry, use a black paint pen to draw two large ovals for the eyes. Color the eyes in, however if you are using regular markers you'll need to leave a little spot uncolored for the pupil. Marker colors like yellow and green will not show up over the top of black. A paint pen will.
  4. To make the teeth simply start in the middle of where the mouth will be and draw a square/rectangle. Now draw another one next to it, and another below. Continue this until your mouth is how you want it.
  5. Add eyebrows with black pen and the pupils with white - then go over the white dots with red, green or yellow. Next add an upside down "v" for a nose.
  6. Apply a coat of sealer and allow it to dry completely.
