DIY Cement Dinosaur Bones


I run a very successful cement statue and decor business called What The Funk Creative Creations and make all kinds of unique cement creations! Since I can’t ship globally due to breakage I thought I would share with the world how I make some of my most popular items! DIY dinosaur bones you can dig up again and again in the sandbox! Or you can add wall hooks on the back and have them hanging as decorative pieces! 

All you need is:

Dinosaur sand toys
Cement all moulding cement
Mixer
Water 
Cooking oil spray

 
First spray your sand toys with a thin blast of cooking oil, too much will ruin the surface area. 

Mix your cement according to the instructions on the bag you bought. You can use cheaper cement if it’s all you can find just sift out the large rocks first! 

Pour it into your molds just to the top not over the sides or they can be hard to get out. 


Let them dry completely before removing them from your molds. 

Lightly tap the piece into the palm of your hand until it comes free from the mold. If it doesn’t come out nice give it a few small taps with a rubber mallet or pry the sides gently until you see the cement begin to come from the sides.

You will have some breakage but keep trying and you will get it.
