You need:

  • Finished plaster or concrete mix
  • Vessel (eg plastic bowl)
  • Stable adhesive tape (eg duct tape)
  • Spoon, Water, Plastic bag
  • Scissors, Weight, Tealight

For my form I have a simple plastic bag and put a square cut. I have tried different bag types and the more stable the bag, the better the result. Garbage bags are also stable suitable.  The size you can specify flexible. I oriented myself with my candle on the size.

3. Stabilize Form

Now it is time to touch the ground. Note here the instructions on the package and mix the plaster mix and water in an appropriate ratio. Stir the mass until a yogurt-like consistency results. If you use a flash-dry concrete mix, you have to work quickly here, because the mass dries quickly. Once your ground is ready touched, you can use them with a spoon in your form fill; make sure that you do not fully form, so you have your tea light at the end push into.

6. Close the form

Now comes the slightly tricky part. The form must match the sturdy tape are closed. By doing this you will achieve a great result, you have to advance any remaining air by pressing pack, so that later you will get no ugly air bubbles. This requires a little practice. Tip: If you have any difficulties, you should get the help of another person.

Is your pillow once securely closed, you’re as good as done. Take yourself now the tea light for it, express it to your form and stabilize it with a heavy object (eg a stone). Now we have to wait. It takes at least 24 hours until the mixture dried completely.
