Philosopher's Stone Tutorial

A version of the Philosopher's Stone I found on CuriousGood.com that was made out of resin. 
My, very simple, version of the Philosopher's Stone. I used Method 1.


For use in activities for the first book (or just for decoration), we made a Philosopher's stone. It was very simple, and there's a variety of ways to make it depending on your resources.

The first way:
Things You Need:
Red glass stones (available at most craft stores and even dollar stores)
Hot glue

Directions:
It's very simple; just glue the stones together into a large, bumpy rock.

The second way:
Things you need:
Average stones, preferably all the same colour
Red paint
Hot glue

Directions:
Again, not hard, all you need to do is paint the stones, and when they're dry glue them all together into one large stone. I also recommend painting red over the entire thing again when you're done.

Third way:
Things you need:
A large stone
Red paint

Directions:
Wash the stone and paint it red. If you like, you can 'distress' it a little by making a very thin black paint mixture (thin it by watering it down) and brushing it over the surface of the stone, allowing it to pool in some areas.

Fourth way:
Things you need:
Clay (can be the kind you bake or not. Clay is usually found in craft stores or at a dollar store)
Red paint
Black paint (optional)

Directions:
Mould out the clay so it resembles the Philosopher's Stone. Bake or let it dry according to the manufacturer's  directions. Paint a layer or two of red paint on it. When that's dry, you can 'distress it' a little by watering down the black paint and lightly brushing it over the clay, allowing it to pool and collect in some areas.
