Concrete Mold Instructions
Step-by-Step Instructions explained in video.
- AUTUMN Concrete Mold
- Concrete mix
- Mixing bucket
- Hoe for mixing or small trowel
- Lubricant (silicon mold release, cooking spray, or motor oil)
Prepare your mold: Prepare the molds using a lubricant or a mold release. This helps in removing the finished piece from the mold and extends the life of your molds.
Mixing: Mix the concrete according to the directions on the bag. Add a little water at a time to achieve the right consistency so it is not too runny. We recommend mortar mix, it doesn't contain gravel and easier to work with. Any cement mix will work. Fast setting concrete (like Rapid Set) is great to use, it can speed up the process (couple of hours from pouring to stone).
