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 nice thing about this task is that you really do not need to spend a lot of money you can experiment with many relatively cheap materials and you can find a stepping stone kit to help you out sometimes just going over your garage results in great things to make stepping stones of pieces of tile or broken tile are very good to use for this purpose the same goes for china or ceramics – very easy things to find. If you are looking for something with a special look and maybe for a unique pattern and some kind of effect you should start looking for the material that will give you this feeling. Stepping stones are lovely to have and great to plan and make have fun.
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.
