Position the sponge ball to the front of the bottle neck. Tape it up the back and around the front. This type of ball ensures that there won’t be any deflating or bursting. I really HATE when a ballon covered in concrete bursts!
Tape the jars on the paint stir stick across his back. For the upper legs/ thighs I used longer jars and a styrofoam meat tray to have something to anchor to that is easily cut. Use things that you have
Before getting into the cement mixture make sure everything is ready. Use fabric that absorbs works well for dipping in concrete. Cover the work area
It should be free of lumps and thin enough to absorb into the (pre-wetted) fabric.
Dip and massage the fabric into the Portland cement slurry. Position and adjust the folds until satisfied
Once it is as you like let it cure slowly, misting with water to allow a damp cure. After curing, remove the inside structure (cutting may be needed)
To add a smoother finish another layer of Portland cement slurry can be brushed on the dampened concrete. There is no sand in this mix, the fabric acts as the aggregate. Enjoy the Step Spook!
