Relax stones

Here's a fun little project to make something to keep on your desk, or anywhere else, reminding you to relax.
1. Mix polymer clay to make a pleasing stone colour. I used granite effect clay with some added grey clay.
2. Make the clay into balls. Flatten the balls into oval shapes.
3. Use alphabet stamps to add your message, then bake.

4. Using a very fine brush, paint some acrylic paint inside the letters. Wipe any excess paint off immediately.

5. Buff the surface to a sheen.

These are quite tactile, too, so if you are feeling stressed you can hold them and turn them over in your hands to distract you from what's on your mind.
