Instructions in 7 steps
With the jack-of-all-trades among concretes, our 5-in-1 creative-cement, you can mould a chic concrete bowl by applying the cement mixture around a balloon.
Besides the articles listed below, you also need: Sturdy painting mat, mixing vessel, solid container as balloon stand, disposable gloves, kitchen roll, aluminium foil, scales, balloon, tealightAnd this is how it works:
Step 1Inflate the balloon and knot it well so that no air escapes. Place the balloon on a suitable vessel in a stable manner with the knot facing down.
Step 2For the next step, use disposable gloves. Mix about 250 g of creativecement 5-in-1 with about 35 ml of water. When mixing, add the water slowly, little by little, while kneading continuously. Knead the crumbly mixture quickly, preferably on a mat (e.g. a sturdy painting mat), until it becomes easily mouldable.
Step 3Apply the cement mixture to the balloon with your hands and gently model the mixture around the balloon. The cement mixture develops a slight flowing motion, so you need to apply a little finger pressure. With a little help from the palms of your hands, spread the mixture irregularly over the balloon. This creates various and beautiful edges on the cement-bowl.
Step 4Let the bowl dry out on the balloon for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight). Then you can let the air out of the balloon by piercing it with a small needle. Rub carefully down small, unwanted edges with sandpaper.
Step 5Paint completely the inside of the cement-bowl with gold Extreme Sheen paint. A second paint coat may be recommended. Allow it to dry out.
Step 6Finally, paint the edging of your moulded cement-bowl with the black All-purpose paint and let it dry out once again.
