Some Good Advice on Homemade Stepping Stones

  • Wear protective gloves and eye-ware
  • Do your cleanup outside. Concrete will easily wash down the drain, but will also harden inside the pipe!
  • Do not walk on stones for at least a week to make sure they are fully cured (hardened)
  • A tip to making the stone "harder" is to (water) it. The more you wet it after it is hardened, the harder it will be!
