Cast a concrete candle holder

How to instructions

Cast a diamond-shaped candle holder for tealights. Have at home (in addition to mould & concrete): Mask, neutral cooking oil, sandpaper, spoon, paper towels, decilitre measuring cup, plastic wrap, spray bottle. Wear gloves and cover the work table with protective plastic.
METHOD: 1. Brush the mould with a little oil.
2. Fill the mould and shake/knock on it (so that any air bubbles disappear).
3. Cover the mould with plastic wrap and let the concrete harden.
4. Meanwhile, spray the concrete with water a few times (about twice). Hardening time varies between 1-2 days.
5. Carefully loosen the concrete from the mould and let dry completely.
6. Paint with Hobbylack; let dry. Sand off any paint that ended up on the outside with sandpaper. Tip! Cut out a piece of felt and glue it to the bottom of the candle holder to keep it from scratching the surface underneath.
