Rocks

“How To Make Acrylic Painting On Rocks Waterproof

Make sure your acrylic painted rock is completely dry. If you use Outdoor Acrylic Paint or DecoArt Patio Paint you can skip the varnishing.

Otherwise, to make your acrylic painted rocks waterproof apply 2-3 coats of Outdoor Polyurethane, wait 24 hours between coats.”
