How to Make

  1. Paint the bottom of the stone light green. You may need to apply a few coats.
  2. Then paint the top of the stone pink.
  3. Once the green paint has dried, paint dark green stripes on top of the light green section.
  4. Then, paint a thin white line along where the pink and green sections meet.
  5. Stick two wiggle eyes on the pink part of the stone and draw a smile.
  6. Draw black seeds on the pink part of the stone using a black deco pen.
  7. Once the paint is dry, varnish the paperweights to create a glossy finish. Try not to varnish the top of wiggle eyes, you can always remove the wiggle eyes and re-stick when the varnish is dry.
