Decorative Concrete - Stick-on Voids

This technique uses foam stickers to create voids in the surface of concrete during casting.

The foam stickers are removed after the concrete is set to leave their impression. The stickers I have used in this instructable have glitter on the top, which is transferred to the concrete during the setting process.
