Did you know that July 17th is World Emoji Day? This day was created to promote the use of emojis and spread enjoyment to those around us.

What a better way to do that than create your own painted rock emojis?

How to create emoji rocks:

  • Step 1: Prepare your small round rocks but washing them with warm soapy water and let them dry before you pain them.
  • Step 2: Apply two coats of your base colour and let the paint dry completely.

Option 1: White base coat and then two coats of yellow circle for the emoji

Option 2: Yellow all over as the rock is the emoji.

  • Step 3: Using your soft pencil, dry your emoji features onto the rock. Eyes, mouth, all the face features
  • Step 4: using your acrylic paints and fine paint brushes, paint on the features of your emoji rock.
  • Allow pain to dry completely before using clear seal to seal your rocks.
