How we do it:

Autumn Concrete Bowl Overview

Collect all items and let's start!

Autumn Concrete Bowl Step 1

Fix a strip of tesa® double-sided adhesive tape ECO FIXATION on the upper side of the leaf and remove the protective film. Glue the leaf on the outside bottom of the smaller bowl, which gives the inner shape.

Autumn Concrete Bowl Step 2

Oil both bowls with the cooking oil: the larger one inside, the smaller outside. This ensures that the bowls may later be easily removed from the mold.

Autumn Concrete Bowl Step 3

Mix the fast-setting concrete with water according to the instructions on the package. Important: The mixture must be worked up very quickly!

Autumn Concrete Bowl Step 4

Pour the mixture into the larger bowl. It defines the outer form. Immediately place the smaller bowl with the leaf in the center of the large one.

Autumn Concrete Bowl Step 5

Press the small bowl into the mixture and hold it for a while, until it starts to dry. This takes approx. 2 minutes. Then allow to dry completely. Remove the finished bowl from the mold.

Autumn Concrete Bowl Step 6

To avoid that the bowl leaves scratches on delicate table tops, on the bottom we fix a strip of tesamoll® E-Profile.
