    You should use the same colour (a dark colour is best, but you should use whichever you feel is right) for each rune.

    Remember, one rune per stone.

    When the paint dries apply a coat of varnish to the stone to protect it from wear and tear.

Hi,
They are great! I have a couple of questions:
What sort of paint is it (sorry I cant read the label in the photo)? What types work well so that they dont come off, flake? Or doesnt it matter as u have varnish? Also is there any particular type of varnish u would reccommend?
Gr8 Work! Happy Thanks for the How To!
