STEP 4
The imprint tool mentioned above allowed me to give texture to my rock by then using stamps. I chose a variety of them and occasionally played around with their properties in order to achieve the desired result. I also increased the number of subdivision levels in order to get a higher level of detail.

I then added some light and rendered out a few images of my rocks.
