But, that's not quite what I have in mind. What I want to figure out how to do is to create my own mold, or "form" as it apparently is more accurately called. I want to take a shape I have in mind, make my own form, and then pop out some concrete pavers.
Does anyone know of a good tutorial on how to make your own concrete molds for paver stones? I'm interested in possibly making a puzzle piece path, or some other interlocking design, but I don't know how to mold concrete and get it out of the mold without breaking it.
When I Google it, I keep finding things about toxic mold and removing mold from concrete. I'm just not hitting the magic search terms, I guess.
I need a little creative help here. I've been really throwing myself into some landscaping and now, I need to put in a garden border. It's got to be cheap, decent-looking, and something creative. I've thought of wine bottles buried bottoms-up, broken concrete, and river rock. But, I want something other than those fairly common solutions.
Um maybe Ive heard to much about aluminum and alzheimer's but ....
Drink a can of Coke, lately?
This myth about aluminum being harmful, and alzheimer's specifically, has been around since Rudy Valentino died. Do a little research. The world is full of enough real dangers, there's no need to be afraid of the false ones.
"In the mind of many scientists, if aluminum plays a role it is most probably a secondary one. The reasoning for this position is based on the fact that aluminum is one of the most abundant and pervasive elements. It is found everywhere--it is in the water we drink, it is in the dust we breathe, it is in many of he substances we use every day such as coke in glass bottles, food preservatives, many cosmetics and food dyes. Even if we stop using pots and pans or underarm deodorants, it will be virtually impossible to avoid aluminum. Given this type of exposure of the general population, if aluminum is playing a major role then one would expect the numbers of people affected by Alzheimer's to be much higher than they are found in epidemiological studies."
Thank you for your help, you two! After looking at all of those, I had a pretty good idea on how to proceed, and I've made my first prototype. Now, I need to work on some improvements, and a few more versions later, and I'll have a finished item.
A slipcase is basically an open box. It has a spine, two sides and a top and bottom. Everything is assembled and usually covered in cloth, paper, or leather and this case slips over a book to protect it.
