INSTRUCTIONS

NOTE: Wash the rock and let it dry completely before painting. Protect the work surface with a sheet of newspaper. Allow paint to fully dry between steps and when changing to a new color. Repeat each step as needed for additional coverage.

  1. Joy sign: With Black Tie, paint a large oval covering the entire surface of the rock except for a small rim around the outside. Paint a second coat, if needed.
  2. Using a pencil, lightly letter the stone with the word “joy”.
  3. Paint over the pencil marks using White Birch and a fine tip brush. Thicken the down-strokes of the lettering. Let dry completely; paint a second coat, if needed.
  4. Use a toothpick and paint on small snowflakes of varying sizes using Cotton Ball in random spots around the rock. Paint some dots as well using the tip of a toothpick.
