Football Rock Painting Supplies
You can paint these tutorials with paint pens or acrylic paints. I am using extra fine tip paint pens since these are smaller stones. If you are using a brush and acrylic you may want to get a black pant pen for the lining.
How to Create Football Painted Rocks Step-by-Step
Below you will find step by step images on how to paint this design. There is a full video tutorial after if you are looking for more details or tips!
We all hope our team will end up #1! The number sign (or hashtag) is the hardest part, until you see it broken apart. Start with a square in the middle and then build out to each side with a square with an invisible edge. Then keeping the spacing consistent add on the outer edges. I’m keeping my 1 simple here.
I decided to fill it in with a checker pattern. This makes it easier to add in your favorite team’s colors!
Next, we have 2 different heart designs to show your love for the team! The first is pointillism style. Start with a heart sheet of paper dot right along the edge really close together. Work your way towards the edge. Then do the same with your second color.
For our football painted rock heart just split your heart in half and add football laces down the center!
Finally we have our favorite gnome ready for the game. Lay out your gnome and create patch sections on his hat.
Fill in the patches with different designs and solid pieces until it’s full. You can even color their shoes! Put a football or flag in his hands and he’s ready to go!
- If you are using this tutorial to paint a rock, make sure to seal your painted rocks before putting them out into the world!
