4. Do you need a base coat?
This comes down to preference. I do a basecoat on about 50% of my rocks. It really depends on the design or the look you are going for.
If you are going to add a basecoat there are many ways to do it too! I like to use a pouring method for a big batch of rocks.
Sometimes I will take my time on a rock and give it a good 360 basecoat.
Other times I will simply lay down a layer of paint on the top!
There is no “right way” to do it, which is one of my favorite parts of this hobby!
One thing to remember. Let your base coat dry completely before moving on to your design.
