  • Yes. Hand molds or something you like. I put plastic wrap into my cake pans and place my kids handprints in them. You may want to sift your cement for a finer grain instead of a rocky hard mess. I put those refrigerator magnets in my kids hanprint molds to spell their name.

    I havent tried this yet but, I want to put plastic wrap into a mixing bowl, line the bowl with flour de lei (Sp?) so I can have a half circle shape and the flour de lei's will mold the side. Make sense?

    Place cement in between two bowls for water bowl or fountain or fill with sand and citronella candles .

    A large tin can filled with cement makes a great umbrella stand. Have fun!

  • stepping stones. if you have shells or glass or anything that looks cool like that you place your stuff on the bottom of your mold and pour the cement over it. Let it set and there you go!
