Mod Podge (Info)

After your paint is finished drying, brush a bit of Mod Podge on the back of your rock, using it as glue to add your label.

Smooth the label out with your fingers and let dry for 2 minutes before moving on.

This is when you’ll want to add your hashtag to the rock.

Once the label is in place, write the hashtag that you created on your rock using a permanent marker.

Remember, it can be anything you want!

This is how you’ll track your rock online when others find it, so don’t forget what it is!

Let dry for 2 minutes, then paint a layer of Mod Podge directly over the top of the label and the hashtag as well.

This will need to stand for at least 10 minutes before moving on.

Once the label is sealed, you’ll repeat the same process on the front of your rock.

If you use any kind of marker in your artwork the Mod Podge will protect it from running or smearing, and it creates a more protective layer overall.

Add a layer of Mod Podge onto your painting just like you did on the label, and let stand for another 10 minutes to dry.

That’s what it will look like during the process, but don’t be worried! It will dry clear and glossy, I promise!
