Today I was working on darker rocks. So before adding any colors, I painted my heart with white.

If you are working on a white rock or a light basecoat color you can skip this step. Paint these simple smiling hearts onto rocks and you have an adorable Valentine's Day rock painting idea! #rockpainting101

Now that you are working on a light surface you will only need to add on one coat of your color. Paint these simple smiling hearts onto rocks and you have an adorable Valentine's Day rock painting idea! #rockpainting101

Next, add on your face. A set of wide set big eyes will do. Add in your smile as well! Paint these simple smiling hearts onto rocks and you have an adorable Valentine's Day rock painting idea! #rockpainting101

Now add on some little legs and an outline. You could add arms if you like. I liked the look without, but you do you! Paint these simple smiling hearts onto rocks and you have an adorable Valentine's Day rock painting idea! #rockpainting101

Allow the eyes to dry completely then add on a white highlight.Paint these simple smiling hearts onto rocks and you have an adorable Valentine's Day rock painting idea! #rockpainting101

101Tip: If you do not have a white 1M paint pen you can simply use a toothpick or sharpened pencil to add on your highlight!

If you are creating these hearts on larger rocks you can add on cute phrases. YOU ROCK, SWEET PEA, Etc. Since mine were smaller I could only fit BFF onto one. Paint these simple smiling hearts onto rocks and you have an adorable Valentine's Day rock painting idea! #rockpainting101
