  2. Paint your characters onto the tops of the stones and leave to dry.
  3. Add another coat of paint to the stones if necessary.
  4. Use the black fabric pen to write ‘Story Stones’ onto the front of the fabric pencil case. You can then use this case to store your stones when you’re not using them.
