• A PACK OF ROUND CERAMIC MAGNETS .75IN
• CHOCOLATE SILICON MOLDS (WE USED ROBOTS AND BRICKS)

LET’S BEGIN!
1) PREPARE YOUR WORK SURFACE AND TAKE PRECAUTION. USE NEWSPAPER TO PROTECT YOUR WORK TABLE AND EASY CLEAN UP. MAKE SURE TO WEAR LATEX FREE GLOVES TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN AND A DUST MASK TO PROTECT YOU LUNGS.
2) MIX 3 PARTS CEMENT WITH 1-PART WATER IN A PLASTIC CUP OR CONTAINER. MIX UNTIL A PANCAKE MIX CONSISTENCY. (OPTIONAL: AFTER MIXING CEMENT YOU CAN ADD COLOR BY USING OUR COLORANTS WHICH ARE HIGHLY CONCENTRATED PIGMENTS THAT ARE SPECIALLY FORMULATED FOR USE WITH CEMENTS AND GROUTS.)
3) POUR SMALL AMOUNTS OF CEMENT INTO YOUR SILICON MOLD. POUR INTO EVERY OTHER CAVITY, NOT SIDE BY SIDE. DO NOT FILL TO THE RIM, LEAVE SPACE TO PRESS IN MAGNET. 4) SHAKE SILICONE SLIGHTLY TO REMOVE AIR BUBBLE AND SPREAD CEMENT EVENLY IN MOLD CAVITY. USE A TOOTH PICK TO MAKE SURE THE CEMENT GETS INTO EVERY DETAIL OF THE MOLD CAVITY.
5) WORK QUICKLY AND PLACE A SMALL MAGNET ON THE BACK BEFORE CEMENT DRIES. MAKE SURE NOT TO PUSH MAGNET ALL THE WAY IN. THE MAGNET NEEDS TO STICK OUT JUST ENOUGH TO ATTACH ITSELF TO THE FRIDGE.
6) SET ASIDE ON A FLAT SURFACE AND LET DRY FOR UP TO ONE HOUR.
7) ONCE CEMENT IS DRY, POP OUT YOUR CEMENT MAGNET FROM THE SILICONE MOLD. USE A SAND PAPER TO SMOOTH DOWN ANY ROUGH EDGES.
8) NOW IT’S TIME TO PAINT! BE AS CREATIVITY AS YOU LIKE. PAINT A SOLID COLOR, DO SOMETHING GEOMETRIC, OR LEAVE AS IS FOR AN INDUSTRIAL LOOK. SET ASIDE AND LET THE PAINT DRY. (YOU MAY NEED TO PAINT SEVERAL COATS).
9) AND VIOLA! YOU ARE ALL DONE. DECORATE YOUR FRIDGE, LOCKER, OR FILING CABINET WITH THESE COOL AND CREATIVE CEMENT MAGNETS.
