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.
