Pseudo-Wet Stones

I finally found paste wax. Applying paste wax to room temperature stones resulted in stones that looked wet at first, but, after they dried overnight, went back to their former appearance. Heating the stones in the oven and then applying the wax appears to have done the trick. The newspaper I sat them on absorbed some of the wax as they dried, and I think I over-waxed one of the rough stones... but I'm pretty happy with them now. :)

These are my paperweights. (I can sometimes get quite strong cross-breezes through my apartment, and anything not weighted down goes flying.) I will be covering some of them the way Resurrection Fern does. Others I will leave the way they are.
