- Black Paint
- 2 Paintbrushes
- OPTIONAL Baker's Twine (or any ribbon of choice)
- First, take your first paintbrush and brush off all the excess powder and rock dust off your geode- if you don't, the paint may just fall off with the dust later! (You can also rinse your geode, but I was too excited to wait for mine to dry)
- Next, simply paint the entire outer surface black. I did mine half at a time, and I painted two coats just in case!
- Optional- wrap/tie the coal with a piece of baker's twine or ribbon- I prefer the baker's twine because it adds a simple touch, and gives it a bit of a comical air.
