could you just use a regular acrylic white paint?

OMG, these are amazing! I adore the heart stones – I had a collection many years ago when my children and I started seeing them on a beach we visited. What a sweet gesture by your husband. I can't wait to try this SOON!!!

Do you need to seal them if used in the garden?

So Amazing! I use to paint rocks with the kids when we camped. They would collect them during the day on our adventures, then we'd paint in the evening. 25 years later, some of the kids Still remember those fun trips.
I can't wait to make these "geode" looking ones! 😍😍

I LOVE THIS! And I loved hearing the stories behind your rock collection. I, too, have collected some rocks over the years both inside and outside. Thanks so much for sharing this idea and inspiring another use for my alcohol ink collection. I think I’ll make it today’s play. Have a great day!

For me, the pearl/metallic colors and your last part of the splatters is what made these come to life. So pretty! I'd like to know if you painted the back side as well.

This was a great tutorial; I have been wanting to do this forever. Today as I was putting the finishing touches to organizing my crafting space I found 4 bottles of alcohol inks and the blending solution!!! Forgot it came in a previous card kit now to find the rocks. I have to say yours came out amazing; lol very that 1st one, the colors are gorgeous.

Gorgeous! I love them! Never in a million years would I have though to use my alcohol inks on rocks! Can’t wait to try! ❤️ Did you seal them? Or do you think you need to if placing in garden or hiding them in parks?
