Step-by-Step Tutorial: How to Paint a Frog on a Rock

Get started by filling in the entire rock with acrylic paint. Set it aside to dry completely.

Once the rock dries, use a pencil to outline the frogs on the rock.

Tips: You should sketch the shapes of the frogs lightly for guidance when painting. Avoid making thick dark lines. You might want to adjust some details of the frogs; you can easily do that.

Paint the eyes, mouth, belly, legs, and the whole body.

To give the frog a deeper look, paint the body green first. While the green is still wet a bit, start applying another layer of lime paint on some parts of the frog’s body. 

Tips: To create lime green, mix yellow and blue in a ratio of 1:1 to make brighter green. Then, add one extra part of yellow paint and keep mixing again. Continue to add yellow until you get lime green.

When the paint dries, use a marker to outline the whole rock in black.

To finish the rock, add a light layer of sealer onto it. 

Don’t hesitate to make the rock frogs in various sizes and shapes to display them around the garden.

How Can I Smooth Paint Rocks?

To make the rocks smoother, if your rocks are porous and rough, you need to add a few coats to get decent coverage. 

Give your rocks one or two additional coats of acrylic paint. Once the paint dries thoroughly, use fine sandpaper to rub the surface of the stones. 

This serves well for smoothing your design as well as frog rocks exercise.

What If You Don’t Have a Good Mental Picture of Frogs?

Don’t worry about that if you don’t have an excellent mental picture of frogs.  

Getting a nice picture of a frog is not tough stuff. You easily search for images anywhere around you. 

Rummage through your nature magazines, books for children, or online a bit; you will be amazed at the ideas you can come up with.

You can even make the project more fascinating by making it from a trio to dozens of frogs. Imagine and create a fun story about rock frog painting.

Have a super-duper creation!
