Patriotic rock painting is a fantastic activity for creating festive fun at season parties, cookouts and picnics. It is so simple and requires little prep and few supplies/materials. DecoArt makes Multi-Surface paints that are PERFECT for painting on rocks. Patriotic rock painting works great with the Multi-Surface paints. I will share the colors in a bit. But first, look at these darling rocks.
A few years ago I designed an entire patriotic activity pack. I think these rocks are a perfect activity to go with it. Rock painting is always just so much fun!
I used five colors of DecoArt’s Multi-Surface paints . The rocks were first washed and totally dry.
- True Blue
- Blue Bird
- Cotton Ball
First I use the darker of the blues on the rocks.
Then I added the lighter blue.
Next I added red.
Then I added white.
After these colors dried a little, I went back and added some details.
This project is a a part of a larger series of patriotic projects that can be done in a small amount of time called Craft Lightning! Check out lots of the other amazing projects!

Oh yeah, you might like this project too! Painting rocks for kindness is always a great idea. It is so fun to make them and to place them around your community for others to find. We once found one at a rest stop and it created so much joy. There is a whole rock painting community out there in this lovely world!
