How To Make Cactus Painted Rocks

As we have mentioned this is a very simple project. The important thing will be to locate the correct shaped rocks. You want a nice smooth surface. You should wash and dry them thoroughly so you have a nice clean surface to paint on.

via Mama Gallina

It’s suggested that you use Green Acrylic Paint. Once you have painted your rocks green, leave them to dry completely. You can then decorate using white paint or a permanent white marker. You can use dots, lines, stars to create effects like shown above.

Another way to get some color into your project and give it a real Mexican flavor is to paint up your Clay Pots. This really brightens them up and they look great grouped together.

The more colorful the better and remember, you can pop these outside in your entertaining areas too. A sealant will preserve the color in your rocks.

We also think they look great in a plain Clay Pot. The terracotta color combined with the green painted stones is very striking. As these photos show, anything goes!

We came across these amazing examples from the talented Artist Michela Bufalini who is clearly very talented.  We love the variety in her pots and they look wonderful grouped together.

The Blogger has rounded out her trio of pot with a pale blue and yellow and grouped together they are striking to say the least. Always group 3 together for luck!
