What supplies do I need?
You will typically need two to three cans of spray paint for the base coat, additional paint for your design, and one can of clear coat to seal in your design. For more intricate designs, craft paint, foam brushes and even stencils work great.
What can I reserve the rock for?
You can reserve the rocks for anything!! A student’s birthday, thank a teacher or staff member, congratulatory events, good luck on competitions and tournaments, recognizing milestones… The rock is a fun way to spread any kind of positive message. Please note that profanity and political messages are not permitted.
What if I reserve the rock and the weather is bad?
The rock can be towel dried and the paint will adhere even in the rain and or snow if you want to brave the elements. You may also try setting a pop-up tent over the rock if you are painting in the rain. Rain or shine, be sure to seal your design with a clear coat once you have finished painting. Another tip from a Spirit Rock Painter is to spray the spray paint into the top and use a paint brush with the spray paint. Spray Paint adheres better in the elements.
