Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Be sure to clean off the rocks prior to stamping
  • 2
    Lightly pounce the stamp onto the ink pad. Unlike conventional stamping techniques, do not rock the stamp on the rock! It will be more likely to smear. Practice stamping onto rocks you do not want to use, or clean off any unwanted image with Cleansit immediately. Allow rock to dry and then re-stamp image. Be sure all edges of rubber stamp touch on the surface of the rock. Push down so that you get a clean image.
  • 3
    After dry, rocks can be sealed with Clear acrylic spray. Only use this spray outside.
  • 4
    The stamped rocks make great paperweights and decorations for your home or office desk!
