Pebble painting: Pebble art

Tutor: Wendy, artist

Pebble painter Wendy demonstrates how to decorate pebbles using household paints and materials. This simple art activity is fun for people of all ages. Painted pebbles make attractive decorative accessories for the home, can be personalised as gifts or can be hidden for others to collect when out on a walk.

Prep: gather your materials and clear a space to work.

Video time: 5 minutes (allow for additional time to pause the video to follow the instructions or to try out a technique)


Materials and equipment you'll need to take part:

  • Smooth, flat pebbles
  • Pencil
  • Paint (e.g. tester pots), coloured Sharpies or nail varnish
  • Paint brush (small)
  • Clear varnish to seal (can get this at a later date)
