Re: mosaic stepping stones

create a mold using 2x4's and/or other lumber and pour quik-crete...cement and insert tiles for mosaic. I used broken dishes, shells and tile pieces.
I was inspired to do this from a mosaic piece at the home office for the local Blind Association.

  Subject: mosaic stepping stones

  I need to have 12 stepping stones created by the 15th of March. Ideally they will be 2' square.
  Problem: I can't find a 2' mold....I could pour 4, 1' squares and put them together, doing the contact paper, mosaic and pour method or
  would any of you suggest getting premade stones and putting the mosaics on those.
  Any advice on this?
  We are setting the stones in the perimeter of a 20' diameter concrete slab...we will also have mosaic inside the center of the slab (design yet to be determined)....all of this is going to be surrounding 12' rainbow colored posts.
  It is an outdoor sculpture for our new school.

  We are also having a "run for the arts" on April 1st to raise some money for this project. It is a 2mile walk/2.5 mile run complete with "uniquely, artsy trophies" , t-shirts and other door prizes. I'll let you know how it goes.
