Step 1: Collect the Materials

First of all i have to explain that this is a simple and cheap material decorative task.

1)White Portland cement (one or two cups).
2)Sand, or concrete smashed stone material (three cups).
3)Pot for mixing the cement with sand
4)Small spatules or other tools from kitchen like butter knife.
5)Drinkable water.
6)Small plastic net from warehouse with tools (for the sceletone of origami)
7)A flat stone of our choose for base
8)Some classic music with coffee and a good mood to start...

Step 2: Building the Boat

Now first think is to understand that you have to sculpt like clay the concrete mix (one cement , two sand) on the origami boat sceletone. To have a result like the images. The thick of the concrete could be 3mm to 5mm or higher, it depence our needs and the shape of origami.

Step 3: Finishing the Construction

Last step is to put with a little cement on the stone an press the boat on it. Then we let it dry for 10 hours in a shadowy place not to cold not to hot, not very wet not very dry. After drying, we can paint if we like with watercolours or other colors, we can sand with sand papers or do whatever we like. We can just let it as it is also..

That's all !!!
