These candle holders are made from Concrete Craft in a plastic cup as a mould. Prior to moulding, the plastic cups are lined with foam rubber designs for making reliefs in the finished cast.
Guide step 1
Step 1.
Line the inside of each plastic cup with designs cut from self-adhesive foam rubber.
Guide step 2
Step 2.
Concrete mixture: Mix 6 parts of Concrete Craft powder to 1 part of water. Mix well and leave for approx. 2 min.
Guide step 3
Step 3.
Pour the concrete mixture into the mould and leave for approx. 5 min. NB! Unlike papier-m√Ęch√© moulds, it is not necessary to coat this mould with cooking oil prior to casting. You may choose to do so, in order to easily release the moulded shape when dry.
Guide step 4
Step 4.
Push a small metal candle holder for either long candles or tea lights into the concrete mixture. Leave to dry for 24 hours. A TIP: Fill it with beads to prevent the small metal candle holder from being pushed upwards by the concrete when hardening.
Guide step 5
Step 5.
Remove the shape from the mould.
Guide step 6
Step 6.
