Instructions to make your own maths stones:
1.Find or buy some flat stones. I brought mine from Mitre 10
2.Paint them to your desired colour if necessary. I painted my black
3.Print the stone templates out to fit your rock sizes. You might need to experiment with 2 or 4 to a page, depending on your stone size.
4.Cut out the maths stones templates and glue them onto the stone. I use Modpodge glue from Spotlight.
5.Cover with a matte spray or setting spray to keep in place.
