  • Small Rocks. A little rough for realism, not too big and have a flat ‘gluing’ side.
  • Gold Leaf or Faux Gold Leaf. I purchased some inexpensive ‘flakes’.
  • Brush. Small paintbrush.
  • Magnets. These are neodymium magnets. Tiny but super strong.
  • Mod Podge. I used the matte kind.

You will also need (not pictured):

  • Strong Glue. E6000 or similar.

  • Clean your rocks – an old toothbrush works well. Dry thoroughly.
  • Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge over rock and gradually add the gold leaf.
  • When fully covered with gold leaf, seal with an all over coat of Mod Podge.
  • Glue your magnets to the flattest side.
