  8. That is just incredibly cute! Where can you get concrete that will dry with that much detail?

      Hi Michelle! I just bought regular cement powder, not the stuff with loads of rocks and sand. It might make them a little more fragile in the end, but allows it to be quite smooth instead of all rocky :) Hope this helps!

    Great idea! Problem is, the lace tape can’t be found locally (at least near me, anyway). And finding a cheap, straight-sided, disposable container is nearly impossible. I’ll keep looking and will probably order the lace tape online, but any other suggestions would be most helpful. Again, great idea!

      Hi Scott, great to hear you’re going to give it a go! Sorry the tape is hard to find, I don’t really have any other ideas where you could get it from unfortunately. If you can find it, I’d suggest using a narrow tape, so that you can also use a more tapered container (like many disposable cups). It’s just that the wider tape works better on a straight-sided container. If you do use a tapered container, just make sure the smaller inside container fits in with enough room around the edges. Hope that helps! :)
