Polished Rocks with High Gloss Resin Spray–No Rock Tumbler Needed!
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing a quick resin craft. Polished rocks are shiny and smooth and can be made without expensive rock tumblers and supplies! I love collecting rocks and typically end up carrying pounds of rocks around on hikes and trips because I love them so much. My husband thinks I’m crazy! Shiny wet rocks always look so amazing until they dry and become dull. Polished rocks are the best way to keep that shine permanently!
Making polished rocks just takes a few supplies:
- Envirotex Clear High Gloss Spray
- Smooth rocks (these were curated near the ocean, so they are round and smooth)
- Disposable work surface like a cardboard box
Place the dry rocks in a shallow cardboard box or on another disposable work surface and take them outdoors.
By using already smooth rocks, the shiny finish completes the polished look. Just the way the rocks look with waves splashing over them.
Awesome, right? Perfect resin craft for those pockets full of rocks after a trip to the beach or river!
