Stones can be transformed into anything you like with a little paint and imagination! Painting stones is a fun and easy craft for both children and adults. We made a colourful dragon and adorable tortoise. We recommend children to do their painting with the craft paints in the Decorate Nature DIY kit, which is specially intended for junior crafting. For adults who want a more durable result, we recommend applying a coat of craft varnish.
