Do I need to prime stone before painting?
If you want clear, bold colors, you should prime your stones first. I use the same primer (white) made for wall painting. Outdoor primer is best, because it’s tougher, but just use what you have. Primer makes the paint really stick and you won’t need as many layers of paint to achieve nice strong colors.
Can I paint natural stone?
Since natural stone is porous, you can avoid the paint from soaking in too much by using a spray bottle to lightly mist your surface. While you don’t have to prime your stone, you should use an acrylic latex primer, especially if you’re using a lighter color to cover up a darker stone.
Can I paint the stone on my house?
Brightening the appearance of a stone house facade is as simple as painting it. Special masonry paint bonds with stone and mortar, and it creates a weather-blocking layer that can help seal out moisture. Dirt or other debris blocks paint from the actual stone of the facade, so it won’t bond properly to a dirty wall.
