On the front of each rock I did uppercase letters and on the back I did lowercase letters.

- -Rocks (I gathered mine from the beach, but you can find them at the dollar store or craft store)
- -Stamps - I bought my UPPERCASE stamps at Paper Source and the lowercase ones at Michaels. Here are similar stamps that come with both upper and lowercase letter.
- -Clear stamp pad
- -Embossing powder - Bright colors stand out the best like this embossing powder I bought from Paper Source.
- -Embossing Heat Tool
- -Modge Podge Matte - (Optional)
STEP 1: Stamp rocks.
STEP 2: Cover rocks with embossing powder.
STEP 3: Remove extra embossing powder.
STEP 4: Use the heat embossing tool over the rocks (it's really fun to see the powder turn solid). NOTE: It gets VERY hot, so put a baking sheet or tin and a towel underneath. I learned my lesson the hard way when I burned a small hole into my desk.
STEP 5: Once the rocks have cooled, you can add lowercase letters to the back. If you do this, slip a piece of parchment paper under the finished side so that your uppercase letters don't smear.
STEP 6: Optional - Add matte modge podge to just the embossed part of the rock to protect them.
