If you need a soap holder, make one yourself. Cement and pebbles are great for this. You will spend quite a bit of money and get an original soap holder. Of course, you can just stick the pebbles into the cement, but then the tops of the pebbles are unlikely to be on the same level. I came up with the idea of first laying pebbles in a mold, and then pouring cement. I made this craft project with my friend, but the idea belongs to me. I really like this concrete soap holder.
Total Time: 30 Min + 4-5 Days for drying cement and varnish
That is pretty!!
Thank you very much! :)
That is really pretty! I have always wanted to try concrete crafts but am a little afraid of the medium since it is not forgiving. Any tips or tricks to making it all work? Thanks for sharing your idea!
Thank you!! :)
There is nothing difficult here! I usually use the highest grade cement, especially when I cast small things.
The proportion for mixing cement with sand is written on the bag. But for casting small things, I usually make a ratio of 1 part cement and 2 parts sand, sometimes 1 to 1.
First, you need to mix sand with cement very well, and then gradually add water, mixing all the time and keeping an eye on the consistency of the concrete. It is very difficult to say exactly how much water to add, since the sand is never completely dry. The consistency should not be very thick, otherwise not all cavities in the mold will fill, but not like milk. If the consistency is too thin, then add cement and sand again. Mix everything well.
If the mold is made of plastic, then it must be lubricated, but if you use a plastic bag, then there will never be any problems with removing it from the mold.
After pouring concrete into the mold, be sure to shake the mold a little so that the bubbles come out to the surface.
And then leave to harden it and dry very good.
Try to cast something small first and don't be afraid. I'm sure you will succeed!
