I love your rocks! My grandmother used to paint rocks, too. I especially like the turtle.  Do you/can you seal them with something so they can stay outside?

Annie, thanks for the compliment and yes, you can (and I do) seal the rocks for outside use. I like to use Mod Podge because it's very versatile, however, you can also use a clear, acylic sealer that comes in a spray can. In addition, Deco Art makes Patio Paint which "is permanent, weather-resistant acrylic paint for outdoor decorating on concrete, wood, and terra cotta." Anita's makes a version called Yard & Garden Durable Outdoor Paint.

My latest blog post explains how I seal and protect my painted rocks.
