How to Make Glitter Word Art Painted Rocks

Have you tried painting rocks?Today I'm going to show you a really simple way to make glitter word art painted rocks. Making your own painted rocks is much fun! This is a quick craft you can make over and over again with different words and colors. There are no rules when painting rocks. You just grab a rock and paint it however you like. You can make yours just like mine or write up your own favorite words to make painted rocks that are sparkly and really fun to share.

How to Make Glitter Word Art Painted Rocks

Paint your rocks just like mine or personalize with your own favorite colors and style. You can add whatever words you'd like. To make your rocks really sparkle, get yourself a bottle of Glitterific paint. The glitter look is beautiful!

Materials

If you can't find the same paint colors, that's ok. Experiment with what you have and see how you like it.

Instructions

  1. Cover your work surface.
  2. Wash your rock and allow it to dry before painting.
  3. Apply pink paint to 1/2 of the rock. While it's still wet, apply orange paint to the other side of the rock and blend into the pink to create an ombre color blend. Allow to dry.
  4. Using the marker, write the word you'd like to create. I chose Inspire.
  5. Rinse your paint brush and dab it dry on the paper towel.
  6. Apply a coat of Glitterific around the word art. Be careful not to smear the ink… you might let it dry a little before applying any glitter on top of the word art.
  7. Allow everything to dry and if you'd like, finish with a weather proof sealer.

You can get as fancy as you'd like or keep things simple and let your word be the focus.

Tip: Sharpie markers are great for drawing on rocks. If you don't want to paint your rock, apply a clear coat before drawing just to give the rock surface something a little easier to draw on. I like to use the fine tip markers, but the thicker pen tip will work great too.
