Painting River Rock Deck


We have an old river rock deck that I’d like to paint with epoxy paint. I used epoxy paint to paint the pool inside, I got a little on the deck and it holds well to the river rock. Do you have any info on painting a deck like this?

  1. We do not recommend painting river rock. While the pool paint will stick to the river rock, it is difficult to prep the surface. Getting all the dirt and oils out of all the crevices would be next to impossible. If it is not prepared properly, it will peel. River rock also has a tendency to become unglued and fall off if not sealed occasionally. You would not however want to use the Sun-coast Stain. This would not penetrate the rock and would not adhere.
