Rock Painting – Northern Lights

Rock Painting – Northern Lights

Rock painting is a fun activity that can create some stunning results. Here are a couple of ideas that Education Specialist, Janice Downing, created and shared for some inspiration! We’ve also got some other rock paintings that we’ve shared in the past.

Supplies:  Acrylic paints in various colors – black, shades of green and blue, pink, yellow, orange.  Paint brush. Krylon clear high gloss fast-drying finish

Directions:  Clean and dry your rock. Paint the entire rock in black paint. Let dry. Next,  paint various strokes of colorful paint to represent the Northern Lights.  Let dry.  Next, with your black color-  paint mountains or trees a quarter or halfway up the rock.  Let dry and finish with a light coat of the gloss finish.
