Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
There however is an easy way out. Just make your own garden concrete products at home. Yes dont be alarmed. It is a great way to get your kind of concrete products without spending much. Making your own stepping stones can be a great hobby and you can even get your kids involved and have a great time with them. Your molds will be used to shape the stone according to your style and design in mind. And you can produce as much as you like and all the while knowing that you can always ad to your existing paving or stepping stone areas. Also your stone or paving range will never be discontinued as you own the paving molds or stepping stone concrete molds.
The last step is again sealing the entire piece of artwork with an outdoor water repellent product. You can use a high gloss or matt finish your choice. Apply your artwork to the wall or fence with the appropriate screws or nails. If you dont want the screw heads to show put the piece up first and then paint it in place. Another option I love for outside use is painting concrete stepping stones. They come in all shapes and sizes in your local hardware store garden area. This is a great time of year to do this project because it will be ready for the spring.
You can also give it a different look by using colored grout between the pieces of glass. (Putting the grout on the glass may change the perceived color of the glass in the finished product.) Flat metal punchouts are great for garden stepping stones. Wildlife garden (or other trade) tools and zodiac are all possible themes. Small colored stones could be used to make the constellations. Some garden stepping stone basics make sure you can get the finished stone out of the form by lining it with plastic wrap (rememberwrinkles may show or the plastic become trapped in the stone) or using a nonstick spray; make the stone 34 inches thick so it can stand up to traffic; let it dry for several days before you remove it from the form.
