When Lorenzo turned one I wanted to make some large numbers to put in the photo shoot. I'd already used this technique when making frames for some paintings. The result is a light weight object that looks like it's made out of solid cement.
Here's what you need to do:
- Cut the polysterene sheets in the shape that you want them with a cutter.
- mix the cement mix according to the instructions on the box.
- apply with a flat-edged spatula or something simular.
- let dry at least 24-48h.
