How to paint stones to look like mushrooms:
Start by painting your rocks with the craft paint. You will need one white and one red rock for each mushroom. This may take 2 to 3 coats of paint. Be sure to allow to dry in between coats.
Once dry, add the dots to the top of each red rock. A round pouncer brush makes this easy.
Allow the dots to dry completely then glue the rocks together. I used Beacon Power-Tac and it worked great!
You will need to support the rocks in some way while the adhesive cures.
Once the adhesive is set, you are ready to add these mushroom rocks to your garden!
