Introduction: Candy Corn Painted Rocks

  1. Begin by painting a base coat of white craft paint on the rock and let it dry before moving on to the next step.
  2. Divide the rock into three sections, just like a candy corn. Be sure protect your work surface by using paper plates or something similar while using alcohol inks.
  3. Use a paintbrush for each color so it doesn’t muddy up the each color section of your candy corn painted rocks.
  4. Dip your paintbrush in the alcohol then into the alcohol ink and apply one of the colors across the rock in a horizontal line covering of the top portion.
  5. Repeat the same process of swiping the next two colors across the middle and then the bottom.
  6. For more vibrant colors apply a second coat of stripes across the rock again.
  7. After all the sweet candy corn painted rocks are completely dry, spray a light coat of clear sealer on the rocks and let it dry some before applying a second coat. Let it dry for 24 hours before touching the rocks.
