Last year when my family came for a visit, my mom brought some materials to make stained glass stepping stones for the my garden. The stones were a huge hit. When I went to visit her this spring, she had cut glass for several more stones. We wrapped and packages all the cut pieces of glass and shipped it to my house so I could add cement and turn the pieces into more stepping stones.
I've got two sizes of hard plastic molds to make the stones. One mold is a 16" round mold and the other is smaller and shaped like a brick. So I can make one stone of each size at a time.
So far, I've gotten two stones of each size finished. I think I have about 10-12 more round stones to finish and 3-4 brick sized stones.
It's going to take a while to get them all made, but I'll share them as I get them finished. There will be a lot of these stepping stones in my yard. It is a good thing that our yard is large.
Since I made the stones pictured here, I've decided that I like the grey cement better than the white. The cement itself is white and the grey color comes from adding a colorant. The white stones seem a little more artificial or something to me.
I make these stones outside because the cement can be a bit messy. Sherman loves to help us when we are working outside. He will stay with us all day when the weather is cool. But as the weather heats up, Sherman struggles to stay cool outside. He is not built for hot weather. Here are a couple pictures of Sherman trying to beat the heat with a cool drink of water.
