Inspired by the people on here who made WoW hearthstones, I decided to see how realistic looking I could make rocks. Before they were baked I "carved" runes into them, so they could be sort of lucky charm type things.

Well, I'd say they turned out pretty damn realistic!  Good job with mixing the colors, they look awesome.  Grin

Those look good. Very rock like Smiley.  I made some runes a couple of years ago, but I just made round discs. I really like the way you made yours, though.  I might ave to try making some that look like actual stones.

It was a mixture of Sculpey and Kato clay. The differences in hardness is how I got some of the marble-y texture.

I love these. The boyfriend was obsessed with runes for a while, and I've always wanted to make him a set as a throwback to those days...I'm going to bookmark this for ideas in the future. Smiley Great job, especially on making the clay look marbled.
