painting words on cement stepping stones

drbayJune 11, 2011

Help! I don't have an even hand but I want to paint the cement stepping stones I made. The intricate words are indented. I know with indented words on wood, you can spray paint the surface and when dry, sand off the surface leaving evenly painted letters. Any suggestions or better yet, any artists want to come to Iowa and paint them for me?

put vaseline on the areas you dont want paint and when the paint is dry wipe off the vaseline.

If they are indented could you pour a little bit of paint in and move it around with a small brush, very small or even a toothpick depending on the size of the letter.?
Good luck!
