    Would Quick Dry cement do? Or is that the one that you used? Normally not so lumpy just open bag add water and go with it. Oh can you put a dye in it ?

    I tried this and my results weren’t good. The cement flaked off of the fabric and they didn’t hold their shape. My mix: 2 parts Portland, 3 part sand, 2 parts water to get the consistency. Help please!

      My understanding is all ingredients need to be the same = equal measurement. I would also omit the sand and substitute with vermiculite.

    Instead of towels I have used a sheet that I have cut into squares of different sizes. It looks great, I do need to sand the bottom to insure it maintains balance.

      What was your mix? Mine didn’t hold its shape and the cement flaked off of the fabric. An old sheet was what I used.

    Cannot wait to try this. I have an old "Drop Cloth" that I am going to try this project on. It is a little heavier than a sheet and seems like it may hold up better. Will let you know the results!!!

      Hi Pam, have you tried the old drop cloth, I have not tried any of the cement project as of yet, sure would like too one of these days, I live in an apartment. All the best to you.
