  • Wash and paint several stones in metallic gold
    *The bigger the stone, the larger the end result
    Wrap the stones in pipe cleaners and secure in place
    Tie a string to the stone and secure it to a pipe cleaner so that it hangs inside of the glass jar
    Fill the jar with boiling water and food coloring

  • Add 1 tablespoon of borax per cup of boiling water
    *You can use more if you want to
    Submerge the stone into the water and let set for at least 6 hours
    The longer you leave it, the larger it will grow
    Remove and let dry

  • Teddi commented 5 years ago

    Do you have to seal them afterwards? I was wondering what happens if they were to get wet. I think they would make lovely gifts!
