Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
After you have sealed the stone and it has dried apply any color or design you like. It is best to use outdoor paint but I have used indoor with no problems. The last and final step is to use a clear coat sealer it often comes in a spray can or you can paint it on. Viola you are done and you now have a beautiful stepping stone for less than $10.00.
The kids will enjoy comparing their hands and feet to their parents as they grow and the parents will cherish the memories the little prints will hold of childhood for many years to come. The easiest way to craft stepping stones is to make them using a method called the Stone Topper. If you have never made a mosaic stepping stone or are looking for a quick and inexpensive way of crafting a number of stones this method is perfect. No molds no expensive kits little mess and you probably have most of the needed materials on hand.
The possibilities are endless so have fun choosing your garden statues and finding the best place for them in your lawn and garden. Stepping stones are another great way to add a personal touch to your backyard. You can use them functionally as actual paths to walk on or you can use them to purely decorate an area that may be difficult to do anything else with. Garden stones are great because they are so easy to decorate with; you just place them where you want them and thats it youre done. You can put stepping stones right in the grass to make a path or in an already landscaped area of rock or wood chips. Either way stepping stones are surely easy to deal with.
