Spirit Rock Painting Tips
Premium spray paint works best (Rustoleum, etc) vs. a generic store brand.
2-3 cans of spray paint should cover the entire rock for your base coat. You will probably need to spray it a few times for complete coverage.
Once you have the base coat done, use chalk to sketch out your design. Try to do large shapes so that it’s easy to see from the road and so that you can use spray paint for most of it.
Stand back from the rock (closer to Water Plant road) to make sure you can see the design from there.
Spray paint your large areas. If you mess up, use your base coat color to fix the mistake.
For more detailed areas, use a can/tube of paint and a paintbrush. While outdoor latex is best, regular artists acrylic seems to work well too (even in rain).
Make sure to bring paper towels to wipe any drips
Bring a cup of water if you are using a paintbrush.
Wearing rubber gloves will help keep your hands clean.
Please clean up all trash after you are finished.
