The art of pebble painting

The idea of transforming your memories of the beach into mini-works of art fascinates you? So start painting in pebbles to create beautiful designs with ease. The principle is simple. Bring some pebbles from the beach or pick them up from the nearest creative hobby shop and choose the painting technique best suited to your project. The rest is a matter of imagination and patience. Let yourself be inspired by the variety of natural shapes and colors of the stones for a unique creation.

Some tips before proceeding to paint on pebbles


For the less lucky ones who could not get it during a walk in the beach, do not worry. You will find a variety of decorative pebbles in creative hobby stores, gardening centers or at building materials suppliers.
Start cleaning the rollers thoroughly with hot water and soap. You can even rub them with the toothbrush. If there are rough areas or bumps, sand them with 100, 150 and 220 gauge sandpaper.
Before you begin, do not hesitate to practice drawing your design on a sheet of paper. Also, if the design is more elaborate, first make a sketch in chalk, pencil or even the marker with ultra fine paint. This allows you to draw with greater precision.
Always start with the largest drawing. Allow to dry after each coat of paint. You can use a hair dryer to dry the paint faster.
