Step 1: Make the mould

I made my mould out of old bits of wood i had laying around, i also counter sunk some dents in it and placed marbles on it, I also put crushed slate, big rocks off the beach, sea shells and other bits of glass and stuff on it which make the finish poduct better in my opinion, the four pieces of wood are bits of Oak

In my mix I used Ballast ,Yellow Building sand, Plastering sand, White Cement, glass fibre strands, Nylon mesh and inserts of insulation board to make it lighter
