Fun Homemade Stepping Stones...

Stepping stones 05.21.16
I bought my mold from : http://www.gardenponds.com/molds6.htm......I used what they recommender, 8 parts Denatured alcohol & 1 part castor Oil for the mold release agent. .. I have used vegetable spray in the past and it worked fine....Used the recommended Sancrete Sand Mix. Brands may change depending upon where you live. Traced the outline of a brick onto a piece of shirt cardboard..I did take a little off the width and the middle brick I made shorter to look better.. Then traced onto the concrete...I left a 1/2" space for the "grout" which is the unpainted concrete..I bought 2 different color paints from Lowe's Concrete paint, Brick Facade and Poppy Field... you may want to match your brick color.. Painted the darker color on bricks first the came over with a little of the lighter color on a rag..kind of like a light wash...I think they turned out pretty and are easy to do!

    I could get 2 stepping stones out of a 60lb bag of Sancrete with a little left over...the bags cost about $3-4 each..I did leave them out to dry...figured the sun would be a lot of help. It was set in 24 hrs and ready to be taken out of mold.

    I'm not following how you got the brick pattern traced on there with a shirt box. Can you try to help me understand? Can theses be walked on?
