The quickest way I've found. Consist in using fishing weights made of lead and zinc.

First put a little of hot glue to prevent a rattle. Add weight, interspersed with hot glue. Press to stick properly.

Finally, cover the bottom with felt fabric.

<p>Hello. I know I am over 2 years late since you posted this. I am looking into doing something similar. So far it seems cheaper to just buy a heavier set just because of the cost of the weights.</p><p>What size fishing weights did you use? Did you use multiple weights in each piece?</p><p>Did you leave space between the bottom and the new felt?</p><p>Thank you</p>
<p>I know there are sets of weights <br>for chess pieces but I had no time. So I just used weight for fishing, <br>here is very cheap. Those little balls are the weight, so yes plenty <br>of them. <br></p><p>Add enough hot glue to fill the spaces, if go wrong you can remove easily, try to align with the background of the piece.<br><br> Be careful the hot glue can heat part, do little applications. Good luck!</p>
