Navajo Skippers - The Perfect Painting Rock

September 03, 2020

Rock painting is a fun, relaxing, and affordable way to let off stress and use your creativity! Whether you’re looking for something to do this weekend or ways to make your home and garden more unique, painting rocks is one of our favourite things to do. Check out these tips so you can share in on the fun:

Gather your supplies:

Start with the rocks…

What do you need to get started painting rocks? It’s pretty simple. Just rocks and paint! Navajo Skippers are the perfect canvas because they are large and flat. At Dragonfly Landscape Supply, we have lots of Navajo Skippers to choose from in a range of shapes and sizes.

Now the paint…

Navajo Skippers - The Perfect Painting Rock

When painting rocks, acrylic paint is your best option because not only is it bright, but it will withstand the elements better than other paints. We also suggest using different sized paintbrushes to get your ideal design. Don’t forget to cover your workspace with newspaper to limit the mess (especially if you have kiddos involved…and we highly suggest you do! It’s a great family activity).

Did you know we not only carry the rocks for you to paint on but paint as well? We have everything you need to spark your imagination including how-to books with tons of fun ideas to get you started!

What to do with your works of art:

Painted rocks can be a great gift for family and friends, can spruce up your gardens, and are fun to hide around your community for people to find.

Proud of your designs? We’d love to see your masterpieces! Tag @Dragonflylandscape in your beautiful painted rock photos and we’ll share the posts on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
