Zig Posterman markers work wonders on a variety of surfaces, even rocks! With a little bit of imagination, one can create amazing and unique garden markers. Zig Posterman Markers allow you the creative flexibility of drawing your vegetable rather than just labeling them with the provided greenhouse marker.
Zig Posterman has many different sizes and colors which allow you to create rock plant markers as fancy and artistic as you can imagine. The rocks add character and color to your garden. What a great way for children of all ages to understand what type of plant is growing in their backyard.
Make sure you find a rock that works. Any type of rock with a flat surface from the backyard worked well for us. We just wiped off the dirt, removed any loose rock and started the art. Collecting the rocks was another family adventure.
You can also purchase rocks from your local home store or greenhouse. While making the rocks we had to load the pen more often than normal. If you are doing a large area, we loaded the tip right on the rock. If you are doing more detailed area, we had a scrap piece of paper for loading.
Let each color dry before you add your highlights. Each marker color dried for re-coat in about 20 minutes. Our rock was a little porous and it took longer for the markers to dry than they usually do on plastic or glass.
After we finished our Zig Posterman paint marker work of art, you can spray the rocks with sealant. Since we used Zig Posterman Waterproof markers they don’t need a sealant and will be able to be used for many years to come. If you are looking for a shiny marker, just spray with a gloss acrylic spray paint.
These Zig Posterman professional quality paint markers made the task easy and fun!
