Rocks For Painting.
Mod Podge (Label Glue)
Hence, should you seal rocks before painting?
Seal the rock before painting on it. Use a clear brush on or spray sealer. This helps so that the rocks (which are porous) don't suck the life out of your markers. Another option: prime with white paint to help the colors that you paint on top appear more vibrant.
Rust-Oleum Universal Advanced Formula The clear durable topcoat from Rust-Oleum is another good choice for a spray-on rock painting sealant. This sealer from Rust-Oleum dries crystal clear and has UV protection. It has a bit more gloss to it's finish so if you like the shine effect it is a good one to check out.

Paints All kinds of craft, water-based, or acrylic paints work well for rocks. One downside of acrylics is that they tend to be difficult to wash out of clothes, so be careful when using them. ... If your rocks will be living outside, make sure to use patio paint or outdoor-friendly paint.
The main reasons are because of the sealant and paints used in the rocks can contaminate the area, people go off trail looking/hiding painted rocks, and it encourages people to alter the trails or beautify the trails by their own means. However, there are plenty of places people CAN hide rocks.
Since the paint is only slightly water-resistant and not waterproof, the rain will most definitely ruin it. If you have not treated the surface in any way and the paint is still wet, the rain can wash away the acrylic paint.
Acrylic paint, tempera paint and other types of paint that you might use on rocks cannot be sealed with hairspray. Hairspray is neither permanent nor waterproof and some formulations of hairspray and paint react badly to each other and could cause your paint to melt or get gooey!
You can use clear nail polish to prevent smudging, and also use it to prevent rust and to provide a seal. Paint them with a coat or two of clear nail lacquer…” ... Nail polish might react badly with acrylic paint, it's expensive, and the fumes are horrible, but if it's what you want to do, go for it.
Wash the rocks with soap and water and let them dry. Then oil the river rocks with jojoba oil or cooking oil to give them back their wet look. After some minutes wipe off excess oil. Now the river rocks are more colorful and shiny.
Seal the rock with clear acrylic spray sealer, and let it dry. Take the rock outside or into a well-ventilated area. Set it down on a sheet of paper with the painted side facing up. Apply a light, even coat of clear acrylic spray sealer.
A coat of vinyl sealer will protect the artwork, & you can build up the nitro clear over that. Just dust the vinyl on a couple times before applying a wet coat. Most if not all Sharpies will degrade in intensity & color over time, whether sealed or not.
Hairspray: Application of hairspray on the tattoo can make it last for over a month. The hairspray should be applied from a distance of 12-16 inches from the tattoo. Baby powder should also be applied before the application of hairspray.
For a smooth, paint-like effect, I use extra-fine point posca paint pens. These pens also work great on wood and other surfaces. Another great paint marker option are these extra fine point paint markers by Artistro. I'm also a huge fan of TOOLI-ART paint pens and have both the extra fine set and medium point set.
