    Cement Castle HELP!

    Help!!!! I have taken it into my head to make this crazy thing. I want to make a miniature castle, about 20 inches high, out of cement. My plan is to take some old sand castle molds, as well as tubes for corner molds, to make the basic shapes, then do the walls by hand (square mold, with bricks drawn in wet cement.) Iíve worked with cement quite a bit before, but never anything with multiple pieces. Can anyone give me some ideas? How would you put the whole thing together? Any advice? Thanks.

    I would think you might try mosaic adhesive or tile grout to connect the pieces. They would be less obtrusive, and pretty much are made to work with things like concrete.

    It's a brilliant idea. I can see it sprayed with a sandy type texture paint, too, and being pretty amazing.

    Best of luck to you!

    If you want it to look more sand castle like, I saw some craft show where they mixed sand with white glue and molded the shapes.
