My latest obsession! Story stones.
If you have read any of my other BLOGS you will know that I have had many an obsession!
From lightpads, suitcase set ups , posting tins craft sticks. This obsession has been a long time in coming as the stones (resin) took months to come to New Zealand. But the Tuscan stones are finally at Bunnings in New Zealand for $11.25.
You need very little else and they are inexpensive. You will have a printer, paper, paint brush and scissors. You may only need to buy mod podge and a gloss waterproof sealer. The sealer is not necessary but helps prevent the stones sticking together and last longer.
The first set I made was for 10 little robots.
I photocopied the back of the book, enlarging it by 45% and cut out the robots leaving a small white edge. I put a thin layer of mod podge (I use matt but gloss would work too) all over the top of the stone and then placed the image on and covered it with a thin layer. I left it to dry (it is fast, less than 2 hours) and added another layer or two. I left them to dry for 24 hours and then sprayed with the gloss sealer (as the stones are glossy).
So SIMPLE and INEXPENSIVE which are two of my favourite things!!
