If this is the first time you paint stones, see our tips section, there you will find several articles such as the “Top 10 tips for painting stones with kids”

Choose and wash the stones

The first thing you should keep in mind is the size of the stickers, since it will be the reference to choose the stones of the right size.

Paint in white

Paint two layers of white acrylic paint, it is important that you let them dry very well between each layer.

Paste the stickers

Once the paint is dry (we wait until the next day to paste them) stick the stickers on the stones. In case they do not stick well, use a contact adhesive or flexible type (if you use a glue, expect it to be well dried for the next step).

Varnish and protect

Apply varnish to protect and obtain a good finish. This step is very important, since you will get the sticker and the painting are well fixed and your work will last in time. We leave you a link of different types of varnish that you can use.

Prepare the box

Before painting the box, protect the clasp and hinges with body builder tape. Next, sand with fine-grained sandpaper.

Paint the white box

Once you have the box ready (after you have sanded it), clean it with a soft cloth to remove any dirt. Then paint with white acrylic paint (we have used the same stone).

Decorate the box with stickers

When the paint has dried, paste the same type of stickers to the lid of the box to decorate it.

Apply varnish to the box

Varnish the box with the same type of varnish that you used with the painted stones, so you will fix the paint and the stickers. And ready! we only have to wait until it is dry and wrap it with wrapping paper.

I like painting a lot, especially cars.
Sometimes when I see Mum making a stone, I ask it one for me and I put many colors on this stone.
