How To Get Started with Painting Rocks

Luckily, you do not need many supplies to get you started. However, if you are working with more intricate or elaborate designs, then more supplies may be needed than what is on the list below.

The basics include:

  • Rocks (any size)
  • Paint brushes (you can go for the inexpensive brushes; just be sure the bristles are stiff)
  • Paint (acrylic works best and is recommended for rock painting)

If you are mixing colors, you may want to have something that you can mix your paint colors on and some type of small container to keep your rinse water in. Just like painting a picture or piece of artwork, it is also a good idea to have something down, like newspaper, to keep the paint from getting on your work area.

How Much Can I Sell Painted Rocks For?

Painting rocks is an art, so just a painter would price his artwork, it is really all about the style, details, and size. Larger rocks will of course go for more than smaller rocks because of their size. Larger rocks also give you the opportunity to get more detailed designs in which could reflect on how you price your painted rocks.

Pricing your work can also depend on how comfortable you are with your designs and where you live can play a part. You’ll also want to consider the amount of time and cost of the materials used when pricing the rocks.

Tip: If you find that no one is purchasing your painted rocks, it may be a good idea to reconsider your pricing techniques. It can be a lot of things, but the area you live in might have a lot to do with it. It can also be that the designs just don’t fit the community you are trying to sell to. One option you should look into is online selling, Etsy and eBay have artists who sell their rocks and that can also give you a pretty good idea on what the going rate is.

Who Buys Painted Rocks?

While you may get some who complain or ask why someone would purchase a rock, there are many people and companies out there that do purchase painted rocks.

Retailers or residents who are interested in landscaping may be some of your best companies. They often purchase landscaping materials to fit their needs and painted rocks with cool designs may be on their list.

In addition to using them in landscape projects, you may also find that some use them as décor for their home. Some enjoy displaying their painted rocks on shelves or using them as accents to their decorating themes. I’ve also known some to purchase them for weddings either as a decoration or to give as party favors to guests attending the wedding.

Painted rocks have become quite popular over the years and they if you enjoy painting and are creative, you could turn that rock painting into a side business for yourself.
