Thanks Rachel from Rachel’s rocks for sharing this tutorial with us! You can buy one of Rachel’s rocks through her etsy shop, visit her on facebook or watch ALL of her tutorials on Youtube.

I am a self-taught Canadian artist. I started painting rocks about 6 or 7 years ago when I was at home during the summer with my son. No experience with a paint brush! I have always had creativity running through my veins, I used to sing and write my own songs and taught myself to play guitar.

Lately my passion has definitely been my artwork and sharing what I’ve taught myself with others. I have a bunch of tutorials online that I try and make easy and fun for people to create with their friends and family.

I am inspired by so many artists on Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram there’s so much fantastic inspiration everywhere you look!!  I am lucky enough with the support of my husband to work from home and hope to continue to create my artwork long term.

I currently sell on Etsy, donate for various reasons, and of course gift them to friends and family. I also paint custom pet portraits and memorials. I like to leave my painted mandalas on beaches or paid for someone special to find them. To put a smile on their face?

Want to give it a try? Here’s what you’ll need – Acrylic paint set, some stones, and also some art’s and crafts resin (optional), brushes, and a dotting tool, but instead of a dotting tool, toothpicks and pencils also work great.

If you’ve tried out this tutorial and want to show off your artwork you can send in your pictures and we’ll put them on the bottom of this post!

Happy Creating Everyone!

    Thank you Rachel for giving me the joy of painting stones. Over lock down I have painted over 300 stones and they decorate our bathroom in Scotland. I am 73 years old and never knew I could do it! X

    I’ve been watching your tutorials and you have inspired me to paint. You are so very talented and I appreciate how you share and teach us to paint. I have painted so many rocks this past year and it is the reason I have been able to cope. I’ve been in the house alone for the year and painting keeps me happy. Thank you so very much.

  3. Rachel, as so many others have already stated, you are an inspiration! I’ve been retired for about 6 years, and used to get so bored and trying to fill the days. But recently I found Pinterest, and YOU! I’ve been painting rocks for about 5 months, and I can see I’m improving, but it’s slow. But I have all the time in the world! I was having a lot of trouble with my acrylic paints and getting the right consistency, then I found Liquitex. It helps, but I’m not sure I’m using the right product, and I don’t know the right ratio of paint to Liquitex. Could you please do a tutorial on what you use and how to use it? Thank you for giving me a reason to get out of bed!

  4. Rachel, you truly are talented and I love your videos. I, too, have always had an artistic bent, but like so many others life got in the way of my creativity until just recently when I discovered you on YouTube. I’m older, retired and enjoying becoming obsessed with painting rocks, drawing and discovering new media I never knew existed till now. Thank you for your inspirations and sweet nature..I adore you!

    1. Thank you so much!! It makes my heart happy to inspire you! Always make time to let your creativity shine through!❤️
