Raysin house in terrazzo look
Instructions in 9 steps
An antique terrazzo decoration made easy by you. All you need is the Raysin
casting powder, two different colour pigments and the house-shaped casting mould.
Besides the articles listed below, you also need: Plastic container 2 pieces, kitchen scales/ tablespoon, cling foilAnd this is how it works:
Step 1First of all, the chipped flakes need be made. Take 1 tablespoon from the 450 g of Raysin and 2 g of colour pigment (pine green) and mix the two components together in a container (e.g. plastic mug). While stirring the mixture, add the water gradually until a thin, homogeneous paste is obtained.
Step 2Lay the cling film on, smooth it out on a solid surface and spread out the dyed Raysin paste thinly and flatly using the craft wooden stick. Let it dry out for at least one hour.
Step 3Chip the thin Raysin sheet into differently sized flakes with your fingers. Do the same with the Raysin sheet of anthracite colour.
Step 4Strew the coloured flakes onto the bottom of the casting mould to your liking.
Step 5Stir the remaining Raysin in a container according to the instructions on the packaging.
Step 6Spread the first layer of Raysin directly on the flakes using a tablespoon to avoid the flakes being swept away. Then fill the mould with the remaining Raysin.
Tip: Do not pour the Raysin mixture to the very rim of the casting mould – otherwise you may have trouble demoulding it.
Step 7Once the Raysin mixture has hardened and solidified (after about 45 min), you can demould it. In order to demould the house easily, tap the mould with the heel of your hand or on a soft surface (e.g. towel).
Step 8Immediately after demoulding, sand the still wet Raysin surface with the 120-grit (coarse) wet sandpaper until the flakes are clearly discernible on the surface. Rinse the item thoroughly under running water or inside a bowl.
