How to Make concrete moulds and ornaments
The Concrete Jungle guide to making concrete moulds and ornaments as a hobby or business is presented here. This is a short excerpt of a longer film. Mixing the concrete is presented. It is important to get the correct consistency to make the ornament successfully. Other features include the ingredients used and the filling of the latex mould and removing the mould. The mixing ratio for the cement is 4 parts gravel (6-10mm), 2 parts coarse sand, 1 part cement and water. The consistency should be runny and creamy. Latex moulds with a fibreglass support on the outside are used for making concrete ornaments. Latex moulds will not last and therefore a few are made for the same ornament design.
