Question painting rocks?

Hi, can't seem to find what I'm looking for here. It's been ages since I really painted anything but on the island I live on, there has been a huge explosion of artists painting beautiful pictures on rocks, and parents engaging their kids in rock art, then "turning them loose" in the parks here for others to find and enjoy. I love the idea of this and am starting to play with rock painting. This has always been a super-inspiring website for me so I was wondering if anyone here knows of a thread anywhere that involves the how-to's of painting on rocks? I use craft acrylics, but the acrylics forum all seems to be of a more canvas-oriented sort. Thanks much!

Re: painting rocks?

Iíve just recently painted a few rocks with acrylic, itís fun! DecoArt makes an outdoor acrylic paint that should work especially well for rock painting:

If your painted rocks will be outside, then they should be sealed with a clear, gloss, waterproof sealer on every side to prevent moisture from soaking into them and bubbling your paint. I got spar urethane to seal my rocks, but I haven't tried it out yet and don't know if it's the best outdoor sealer for them.

Check out youtube for lots of rock painting videos. My favorites are the rock mandalas.
