  • Hey guys can you please tell me how to waterproof and heat proof my bathroom tiles that are done in acrylics

  • Hi Bonnie!
    We are painting rocks for a project at a children’s event called “Kindness Rocks”. We will decorate them and put a nice saying on them and leave them around town for random people to find. We have a limited amount of time for the paint to dry. What is the fastest drying paint that will work?
    Thanks!

    • Hi Joan,
      Acrylic paint is very fast drying, about 20-30 minutes, and sometimes less or more depending on how thick the coat is put on. I would suggest using a hair dryer on the paint after you’ve applied it if you want it to dry quicker. Sounds like an awesome project! I wish you the best!

  • I always see these everywhere and just LOVE how they look! I am going to have to try this now that I have directions on how to do it. Can you please explain to me what a wood filler is? I have never heard of that before. Did you paint the rocks that are in the pictures? They are so beautiful. I probably won’t be able to do that good, but it is worth a try. Thank you for sharing.

    • Hi Rina,

      Here is a picture of some Wood Filler by Elmer’s. You can order it at Amazon at the link or go to the store to buy it. If you’re going to put the rocks outside make sure you get the wood filler that’s for exterior use. I didn’t paint the pictures on those rocks but I have done some in the past and gave them as gifts. They really came out awesome. I’m going to make some again soon and then I’ll post the pictures on the site. I wish you good luck on your rock painting. I’m sure you will have fun.

      Best Wishes,

  • I love your site! Beautiful layout, easy to read, wonderful pictures! I paint as a side hobby and your website takes the guess work out and makes it so easy and simple to follow with instructions. I love the painted rocks and think this is something I could do with my own children to occupy their time when cooped up indoors!!

    • Hi Bonnie,

      I’m happy you like my site. You can definitely occupy the children with painting rocks. They will even have fun collecting them on good days to paint on later days when they are stuck indoors.
