Step-by-step Dog Rock Painting Tutorial

Start by applying from two to three coats of white for the rocks. Don’t forget to give time for each coat to dry thoroughly.

Use a pencil and draw the shapes of the dogs softly on the rocks.

Note: If you don’t have a competence in imaginative drawing, search available images of dogs in children’s books or online.

Then practice drawing the images on the sketchbook. Once you are confident with your designs, start to trace yours on the rocks.

For the step, you needs a couple of colors to create finished work. I love to use bright colors for my four-legs friends. 

Note: I like to use thin paint brush sizes to color the dog’s details.

After ample time when the paint dries completely, outline the dogs with a black marker.

Stick a layer of sealer to the adorable designs to give them a glossy look as well as protect them from color fade.

Tada! It’s time to contemplate the excellent work! 

What Can My DIY Dog Painting on a Rock be Used for?

Another great thing is you will benefit from turning the finished product into a generous little decoration.

I love to put loyal creatures on my shelf or desk so that I can admire my work. 

Also, they will cheer you up when putting them on pillows or baskets indoors.

Moreover, it’s a great idea to put them in the garden.

However, remember to put a coat of sealer so that the great work can withstand severe weather conditions.

Have a super-duper creation!
