Help to find a flexible material to make a form for cement projec

Posted by KayElizabeth (My Page) on

I am making a coffee table top on top of plywood which is kidney shaped. My intention is to put concrete on the top and place small glass items into the concrete, however I need to find something very inexpensive that will make my form around the plywood which I can pour the concrete into and wont drip out and all over the floor. Any idea? I have had no luck so far.

How about the stuff that quilters use to make stencils out of? It's thin, clear-ish, you can cut it with scissors and you could tack it into place on the edge of the plywood.

They have the flexible borders for your garden out of rubber and then you can use silicon (the kind with the gun) and your finger to make it leak proof

Cut a mold out of blue board and coat the edges with liquid rubber. Do your pour then cut away the styrofoam.
