        What to bring:

        • *Glass tile or smooth non-stick surface to work on. (optional/additional: wide blue painter’s tape)
          *For pouring concrete: silicon molds, flexible rubber stamps, (not mounted on wood), conditioned RAW polymer clay, small cookie cutters etc to make polymer molds. 
          *Also, bezels that can be filled.
          *For embedding: small stones or beads, Swarovski crystals, brass or bronze “trinkets” or other small objects to embed in the wet concrete.

          You will have enough concrete to make one object approximately 1 sq. inch/ .25 inch thick. (or two/three smaller ones) Depending on thickness and surface area of course.

          The dry concrete is very fine but does not “fly” around in the air. It’s non-toxic….however, if you are sensitive to such things, bring a mask to wear.
