Step 1: Materials
- BIC Mark-it fine permanent markers, 24 color pack. (around $13 at Wal-Mart)
You could also use Sharpies or other markers, so long as they are permanent, I just prefer the vibrancy of BIC markers
- Black Sharpie pen. (around $2 at Wal-Mart)
- Small-ish white rocks. (I got mine from a local beach, but you could probably buy them at a craft store such as Michaels)
- Krylon Triple-Thick Clear Glaze (optional)
Step 2: Wash Off Your Rocks
Rinse off your rocks in warm water to remove any dirt, sand, etc. Dry them off with a paper towel and let them sit for a few minutes to dry out entirely.
**Safety Note: Do NOT use a hair-dryer to dry your rocks after washing. Extreme heat can cause wet porous rocks to explode.
Step 3: Pick a Rock to Start Designing
Step 4: Create Personalities for Your Rock(s)
Step 5: Start Color Designs
Step 6: Add More Colors!
Step 7: Add Fine Details
Using your Sharpie pen, add small details- outlines, small dots and swirls.
