Before preparing the concrete We need to impregnate the interior of the mold with petroleum jelly or baby oil to provide a smooth disassembly of our piece. (once dry)

To prepare our concrete I have used a little more water so that It has a more liquid consistency and thus be able to fill the gaps and avoid more air bubbles.

You must let dry for 24/48 hours (depends on the material used).

Once the concrete has dried, remove the piece carefully and sand it to fix the surface.
