Dinosaur bones sandpit

3948CC75-99EA-489A-9264-7318AC778F3B.jpegI’m keen to make a 1m x 1m sandpit with a concrete floor like this one. Any ideas how to make the impression of dinosaur bones?

You just need a mould @kelli. I'd probably make them out of plaster, but you could also use concrete.

@kelli Nice little project!

 

Semantics but you should use cement/mortar rather than concrete so you don't have any aggregate in the mock-fossil. Will give you a smoother (and safer) finish.
