STEP #1 YOU WILL NEED SOME ROCKS!
Flat smooth river rocks work best. I find mine along the shores of Cape Cod, however if you live in the city, check out your local craft store or garden center as they typically sell smooth river stones. The 3″ to 6″ size work best! You can also purchase stones for larger events here.
STEP #2 PREPARE THE ROCKS BY SPRAYING OR PAINTING THEM WITH NON-TOXIC SPRAY/PAINT
This will prepare the rock surface for your artwork/writing and seal the rock so your paint pens will last longer. We like the Apple Barrel Multi-Surface Paint and usually use foam brushes like these.
STEP #3 USE OIL BASE PAINT PENS TO CREATE YOUR ARTWORK
They work best… and are easy to work with, and last a long time. We like the Artistro Paint Pens however Sharpie Paint Pens, Prismacolor Premiere, and Posca are good bets as well.
BE SURE TO ADD…#THEKINDNESSROCKSPROJECT to the back of each rock you drop so others can join us and share their pictures when they find one, that way you can follow the journey of your rock…
STEP #4 FINALLY TOP COAT YOUR ART WITH A NON-TOXIC CLEAR SEALANT
This will protect the artwork from the elements and the paint from altering the environment… brush on Modge Podge outdoor sealant
In a hurry? Try spraying light coats of Mod Podge outdoor spray or Krylon clear acrylic spray. This will typically dry in 10 minutes or less.
NOT CRAFTY ?

WHERE DO I FIND INTERESTING, INSPIRING QUOTES TO USE?
We search Pinterest, Instagram or Brainy Quote for super cool inspiring quotes but often we create our own sentiments that come from straight from our heart!
We also encourage the use of Bible Quotes to strengthen and live our faith!
…some of our favorites are
“One moment can change a day, one day can change a life and one life can change the world, Buddah”
This was dropped to let you know that You matter!
Your Legacy is every life you’ve touched
Hey, Psst… just wanted to let you know how awesome you are
You got this!
Smile and the world smiles back at you
In the end, what will matter most?
