Chris Inanc of New York is not only a great friend of mine, but also one very talented lady when it comes to painting on stone surfaces. Chris does all of her pavers and signs freehand, but you could certainly use stencils if you are not as confident as Chris when it comes to freehand painting. I recommend using DecoArt Patio Paints for this type of project, since this paint is made to endure the elements and can be used on stone/cement surfaces.
Here Chris pays tribute to pets who have passed away:
This house number would be a great idea for a house warming gift!
And lastly, this idea has inspired me to grab a rock or two and paint them for my Dad and Grandmother’s graves… hopefully by Memorial Day!
Chris says that the painted rocks should be used inside only because they chip very easily. She recommends using pavers for outside use as they hold up much, much better!
Beautiful work, Chris. Thanks so much for sharing!
