Say it with concrete

How to instructions

  • 1

    Make sure that your clothes, skin and work surface are protected. Wear protective gloves and a protective respiratory mask when working with concrete.

  • 2

    Cut off the back of a cardboard letter.

  • 3

    Brush the inside of the cardboard letter, including the cut-off piece, with two layers of liquid latex. Let dry and then brush the inside with cooking oil.

  • 4

    Mix the concrete according to the instructions on the package.

  • 5

    Pour the concrete into the mould. Carefully shake the letter and knock on the outside to bring any air bubbles up to the surface.

  • 6

    Place the cut-off part of the letter back on the concrete and tape in place with masking tape. This will allow the letter to retain its shape and stability.

  • 7

    Let the concrete harden for 1 to 2 days before opening the mould and removing the concrete letter.

  • 8

    Sand any edges and unevenness with sandpaper. Then let the concrete dry completely.

Cast silly, encouraging and beautiful messages in concrete! Use cardboard letters as a mould for the concrete. If you want to be able to stick your concrete letters into a flower bed, insert a metal rod into the mould before you add the concrete. You can also make a complete word by cutting up the letters and taping them together before casting. It requires a bit of work, but looks fantastic. Concrete letters are also perfect book ends for your bookshelf, or for decorating your home with words that make you feel good.




NOTE: It is best to mix concrete outdoors because of the dust it gives off. Find a shady spot out of direct sunlight so the concrete does not dry too fast and crack.
