Painting stones is trendy! Certainly for the reason that you put your creativity into play and quickly see the results of your work. It’s also a very nice pastime to do with your kids. Have you tried something like this before? It’s never too late to start. When painting stones, you can teach your little ones dexterity and stimulate their imagination. All you have to do is choose interesting patterns and good colors and you’re good to go!
- What do you need for stone painting?
Before you start, you should get everything you need to paint stones. First and foremost, these are the stones themselves. You need river stones for this purpose, because their surface is smooth and they are regularly shaped – just perfect for painting! Such stones can be found on the gravel bank of a river or on the usual stroll along the beach.
Then you need to think of the paints and brushes that you need to paint stones. Acrylic varnish, acrylic paints and Plaka paints come into question here, but they should not be thick or too diluted with water. Furthermore, we can only recommend that you choose tapered brushes with synthetic hair. These do not get frayed quickly and you will succeed in the painting patterns and the smallest details. Get at least a dozen brushes, especially if you plan to paint stones with children.
- Strong colors and funny patterns are required when painting stones
In most cases, the painted stones are used to create unusual decorations for small areas, for example in the garden, for flower beds or pots. A striking mosaic can also be made. There are no limits to your creativity here. But to make this decoration really eye-catching, you need bright colors and funny patterns. Red, blue, yellow and green in their strong nuances are the most popular colors for painting stones. These are strong enough and quickly attract attention.
Then use the saturated colors to master the painting patterns. We’ll keep it short: funny patterns are preferred here! Small animals (like ladybugs, butterflies and birds, frogs and cats maybe), colorful faces and other funny motifs are particularly popular. The little ones also love them!
