Gardener Kelsey's Tips:

  • For best results, paint a base color layer on each rock and then give that time to dry. Come back a bit later to add your designs!

  • If you want the rocks to look and feel like the You Are a Gardener® book, use turquoise, orange and pink in your designs!

  • Want to learn how to draw Foxie? Head to our YouTube page here for a full length tutorial!

Painted rocks are pretty accents in a home office, on a book shelf, on a night stand or on a coffee table! Where will you put your rocks?
