Stepping stones

February 10th, 2014 by

I found an incredible variety of molds on eBay and I had to try this. It’s amazing how well it turned out. The molds are made in plastic and can be reused many times. Now I just have to find out how I can use all the things I have casted. I have some plans …

    How strong or durable would the larger forms be? If used as path or walk could you ride a lawn tractor over them?

      The largest stepping stones are about 2-2,5″ thick so they should hold for a lawn tractor and even heavier vehicles. The thinner stepping stones are only for walking paths or decoration. You can find the molds I have used on Ebay. Just search for the seller Gostatue.

    I love the butterfly ones and the set of 4 tiles. I would love to use these molds to make clay tiles (not for walking or pathways but may be as coasters). I love clay stuff and love decorating/painting them. I have to look for such molds one of these days.

    I love the door! Always wanted to work with concrete and hypertufa. 2015 may be the year. Thanks for the inspiration and sharing your work.

    I love your work and am inspired by the art and ideas. Can I recycle bottles by breaking them and stirring them in the mix?

      I have never tried this, but it should work. Just make sure there are no sharp edges from the glass on the finished item.

  • I love your work; you’ve given me more creative ideas.

    Hi Monica, I am going to try my hand at casting – I have seen (on Pinterest of course!) that you can color the concrete by replacing 1/4 of the required water with latex paint. Have you heard of this or tried this?

    • Monicascreativeroom

      I have heard of this but never tried it myself. I have only used concrete color pigment in some smaller castings.

    Hi Monica,
    I usually go for your Cameo things. But in this moment I watched your concrete-section and I am really impressed. You make very creative things. I like them. Especially the floewrs, made in August 16
