This home interior is cast from concrete powder mixed in a bucket with added water. Many items can be used as a mould. In this example we have used a papier-mâché letter for a mould.

Guide step 1
1.
A papier-mâché mould: Cut away the back of the letter using a sharp knife.
Guide step 2
2.
Grease the mould with cooking oil. In this case it is to saturate the fibres, but otherwise to make it easy to release the moulded shape at the end.
Guide step 3
3.
Mix the concrete powder with water in the ratio: 1 part water to 10 parts of concrete powder. NB: The more water, the shinier the result.
Guide step 4
4.
Stir the mixture thoroughly.
Guide step 5
5.
Pour the concrete mix into the mould. Make sure that it gets into every corner and press the mix in well. This is done by shaking the mould a few times (lightly with your hands, so that the mix does not overflow the mould).
Guide step 6
6.
Smooth the concrete and leave to dry for approx. 3 hours.
Guide step 7
7.
Remove the mould. NB: As the mould in this example is made from papier-mâché, it may be necessary to break it in order to release the shape.
Guide step 8
A TIP!
You may paint the concrete letter with Chalky Vintage Look paint.
