How to Make

  1. Take a large rock, with a relatively smooth surface, and cover it in a coat of paint. Leave to dry.
  2. When the first layer of paint has fully dried, add another coat of the same colour paint. Leave to dry.
  3. Repeat again with another coat if necessary. This will depend on the colour of the stone and the paint.
  4. When the paint has dried, use a thin deco pen to write your message on the top of the stone. Use a contrasting colour to make sure it stands out./li>
  5. Use different coloured deco pens to decorate the stone around your message.

Top Tip

Make sure the paint has fully dried before using the deco pens to write your message.
