Garden Marker Rocks with Envirotex Spray Gloss Finish
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from @doodlecraft. Do you plant a garden? I’ve just got some simple herbs planted but needed a way to mark them so I would know what was there as they’re coming up. I decided to give my garden some personality with these cute garden markers. Paint garden marker rocks and coat them with Envirotex Spray Clear High Gloss for long lasting shine.
Supplies Needed for Garden Maker Rocks:
- Rocks (washed clean and dried completely)
- Acrylic Craft Paint
- Envirotex Spray High Gloss Spray
- Paint Brushes (wide and detailed)
- Cardboard box (or surface for spraying on)
Step 1 for Garden Marker Rocks:
Begin by painting the rocks a solid color. Let the first coat dry and then paint them with a second coat. After that dries, then turn them over and paint the backside with 2 luscious coats of paint as well.
Step 2 Painting the Herb Names:
Now use a small detail paint brush and write the names of the various plants and herbs planted on the rock face. Add leaves, flowers or any fun details you desire. If you aren’t comfortable writing with a paintbrush, you could use a paint marker for better control.
Then let the paint dry completely.
Step 3 Envirotex Spray Time:
Now set the rocks in a cardboard box and set it outside. Use the spray according to the package instructions. Spray a thin coat of spray on the rocks from about 6-8 inches away. Wait 10 minutes and then repeat the spray process. Repeat the high gloss spray process about 4-5 times.
The Envirotex Spray is the best way to keep the paint in place and keep it from chipping all Summer long. Give your garden some personality with these amazing garden marker stones! Another fun idea is to paint a bunch of bright rocks and hide them around the city for others to find. The Envirotex Spray will guarantee that the paint finish will last.
