The proper way to Rock Out


Rocks can be found at local hardware/landscape stores.
Chalet Veterinary Clinic Rinse the rocks and let them dry.
Family Pet Care at its Best Acrylic paints seem to work best for brushing. You can
also spray paint rocks first for a solid color background.
1621 E. Main St., Stoughton Paint pens and fine tip Sharpies work great for detail.
(608) 873-8112 Once youre done painting your rock, its recommended
to seal it before hiding it to protect your art from the
elements. A spray clear sealant works well, but note that
it can sometimes make Sharpies run. Mod Podge is wa-
ter-based, so be advised it may not hold up in the weather
outside however, you could seal the Sharpie with Mod
Podge, then coat the entire thing with the spray sealant.
Make sure to write Dane County ROCKS and Facebook
