6 Tips for Painting Happy Rocks

I'm having so much fun painting rocks.  I'm enjoying writing positive, encouraging words on my rocks and praying for the person who finds them to be blessed.  Some of these are not quite finished, and then they have to be sealed.  When ready, I'll place them around town for others to find.

Did you know this is a growing phenomenan?  There are people painting and sharing rocks all over the country.  Adults and kids alike are having a blast with these happy rocks.  My grandson loves it.

This is his "potato" rock.
Here are some tips for painting rocks:

Source - I like the white rocks, and found mine at Lowe's for about $9.00 a bag.  There are probably thirty or forty rocks in the bag, some small and some large (see above).  Dollar General has a smaller bag of about a dozen small, dark rocks for a couple of bucks.  I've found these harder to paint on though. Some of the dark rocks have a coating on them, so I'm sticking with the white ones.

I can't wait to get started! I tried following you back but it keeps giving me an error message so I'll return later and try again :)
