How to use tissue paper for stone painting
Check out these step by step instructions for tissue paper Christmas rocks. Then watch it all in action in the video below.
Start with washed and primed rocks. A good coat of white paint really helps the colors pop! Your kids can help prime the rocks, just make sure to give them plenty of time to dry before you start adding your tissue paper. Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to your rock and start adding your strips.
Add another thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the tissue paper.
Trim the edges and continue across your rock.
Tuck under all your edges and secure with a bit more Mod Podge. Let dry and add another layer of Modge Podge to make sure it is sealed well. If you are placing your painted rock outside you will want to add a waterproof sealant on top.
You can also create pictures with the strips! We did this tree and a little present. You can also cut the tissue into dots or squares. There are so many ways you can create using this technique!
