Supplies for painting this galaxy painted rock
On this heart painted rock, I used a holographic acrylic paint from Naturalis Paint.
When I first received these paints from Naturalis I was a bit worried about the size of the bottle. However, as you see in the video below, I barely used any to create this fabulous rock. This little bottle is going to create quite a few amazing stones! It’s definatly worth every penny.
Plus, all it takes is this one paint to create a beautiful holographic effect on a rock. It’s so easy to use, it’s perfect for any skill level!
This paint is what makes these rocks amazing. We recommend using this paint on a black background. If you need tips on getting a quick black base coat, check out our base coat hack.
Step by step instructions:
Create a template of the size of heart you want to place on your rock. I love to use sticky notes for my templates. This helps to keep the paper from moving around while I trace.
Trace your heart onto your stone.
Fill your heart with black paint.
Make sure the black paint is completely dry.
Then, use your Naturalis Holographic Paint to fill in a slightly smaller heart. Creating a black border around your heart.
Using a smaller brush, create a little star with a few dots as a trail on one of the arches.
Once dry seal this rock with a clear acrylic spray.
