Turn concrete into stone! “StepStone Maker” brought to you by RockMolds, has everything included for DIY’s to create natural looking stepping stones out of concrete. With our tools and easy to follow step by step instructions, we show how to “stamp” rock textures into wet concrete, utilizing natural stone textures just like the Pros! Make realistic stepping stones for a fraction of the cost of natural stone!

The StepStone Maker includes everything the DIY needs to make natural looking stepping stones. The rigid rubber forms to put the concrete in, which allows for limitless possibilities of layouts. SpidaStamp regional stone textures, 9” round, flexible rubber stamps which will give thousands of rock impressions. The SpidaGlove, with the hook-and-loop system that allows for simple control for holding the SpidaStamps and easily pressing rock textures into wet concrete. Our premium mini Mini Pool Trowel, specially designed for the DIY to finish concrete stepping stones with its rounded edges. Integral color to mix in with the bags of concrete for the base color, along with a colored powder release to antique the stepping stones. And detailed step by step instructions to easily “walk” the DIY through making your own stepping stones!

SAVE MONEY: Make natural looking stepping stones for a fraction of the cost. We typically use the 60 or 80 lb. premixed bags of concrete from the big box stores. With an 80 lb. bag of concrete costing less than $4 and making 2 to 3 stones, that is less than $2 a stone!
NO LIMITATIONS: The flexibility of this system allows for simple layout to fit your site requirements. With the three sizes of forms, there are literally thousands of options for pathway layouts!
EASY TO INSTALL: Unlike natural stone where a sand bed is required for the stones to sit perfectly flat, that is not a concern with The StoneMaker, where the bottom of the stones will conform to any surface they sit on. That means less work for you!
LOOKS NATURAL: With the organic shapes of the forms, natural textures of the stamps, and color for the stones, your stepping stones look like they’ve always been there!

How To:  StepStone Maker

Materials required:

– RockMolds Integral Color
– RockMolds Powdered Release

StepStone Maker: Hawaii Kit

STEP 1

Create a stepping stone pathway with the three StepStone Maker forms provided. Meander the pathway for a natural flow, and create a randomness with the three forms. Spray the layout as you go with marking paint. Now you can literally “walk” the stone pathway before you pour, while providing a guideline for a quick installation. Make any adjustments to the layout now.

STEP 2

Mix the concrete. We suggest using an 80 lb. pre-bagged concrete mixture, such as Sackrete from the big box stores. Make sure you use the concrete mixture containing aggregate, not just sand. An 80 lb. bag will make approximately 2+ stones. Based on the spray painted layout, you can easily determine how many bags needed before starting the project. Adding RockMolds Integral Color into the mix is a good idea for the base color. We suggest adding 1/4-1/2 cup of the integral color to the water, before adding a bag of the dry concrete. The concrete should be well mixed, like a thick pancake batter, not to soupy. (If you are using bulk materials, 6 scoops of cement to 18 scoops of sand/aggregate, with 1 cup of integral color is a great mix for stepping stones.)

STEP 3

Start to deposit the concrete into the StepStone Maker forms. Work the concrete mix into the edges with the RockMolds trowel, then trowel the screed straight across the top of the form. Any extra material can be placed into the next form. Trowel the concrete until it looks like a smooth surface, ready for texturing. After approximately 5 minutes, remove the forms and place them into the next painted stone locations.

STEP 4

Give a final trowel to the stones you just removed the forms from, including the
sides. Next do the Thumb Test to determine if the stones are ready to stamp. Press your thumb onto the fresh concrete. If it is firm enough to keep your thumb from breaking the surface, but soft enough to take your thumb’s impression, the stones are ready to stamp.

STEP 5

Dust RockMolds Stone Release onto the surface of the stones. Make the release STEP powdery by shaking the bag, before grabbing a small handful. Then apply it like you are skipping a rock across the water, dusting it across the concrete surface and sides. This will allow the SpidaStamp to leave an impression without sticking to the concrete.

STEP 6

With the SpidaGlove, pick up a SpidaStamp by pressing the hook and loops
together. Firmly Stamp the SpidaStamp onto the surface and sides of the
concrete, transferring the natural rock impressions into the concrete. Overlap and rotate as necessary, while feathering onto the previous impression. Multiple textures can be used on one stone. We suggest stamping with a SpidaGlove and SpidaStamp on one hand, while keeping the other hand free to trowel and throw the release.

STEP 7

Continue the process, alternating between mixing, pouring, troweling, and
stamping. You will find a rhythm between these layers.

STEP 8

Color the stones using RockMolds Stone Color water based stains on the dried
stones for additional coloring and highlights. With the integral color, release
agent color, and now the highlights of the water-based stains, your stones will have a multitude of colors, as natural stone would. Start with a light color of the water base stains, and then go darker. Think of this process of painting with watercolors, only on concrete. Apply with a fine mist quart sprayer.

STEP 9

Seal the stepping stones with RockMolds Stone Sealer, our water based  penetrating sealant, to preserve the color of your stones. It is a “natural look” sealant which will protect your investment. This can be applied with a garden type weed sprayer

STEP 10

Once your stones are sealed, fill in around the stones with river rock, cinder,
bark or vegetation. Enjoy your newly created pathway.
