Used a quick setting concrete mix. Perfect for thin-walled decorative pieces. This one is also suitable for outdoors.
Used a plastic spatula to mix concrete powder and water into a thick paste.
Applied the concrete to the top of the balloon. There needs to be enough concrete to bind it together, but not be too thick.
Let it dry for 24 hours. Pop balloon and remove it.
Sealed the inside of the bowl with Decorator's Varnish. This helps to protect it from water as concrete is porous.
Cut closely around the transfer to help it apply smoothly within the round trinket dish.
Used the ruler tool to rub the transfer carefully onto the concrete.
Lastly. sealed with a matte varnish. A matte finish, maintains the look of the concrete underneath.
These are simple to make. Fun to decorate. And make a unique piece of decor.
