1 – Not being able to find an inexpensive square or round molds. I’ve been using disposable cake pans but they only last for a couple of pourings. Those are actually not quite big enough either. So I’m scouting around looking for exactly what I want – at a good price – since I need to have several at a time.
2 – Mixing concrete is harder than I remember! It’s not for the “weak of arm muscle.” If anyone knows of a better (and easier) way than stirring, let me know!
My husband bought me some liquid concrete stain in a terra cotta color that I have tried and love. It’s mixed in the water first and then with the concrete for a lovely and vibrant color that is not supposed to fade.
