The best way to store the stones is by covering them in plastic at temperatures above 70F(20C) degrees for about 12 hours.
Please note: The mold is pre-released. No release agent required for the 1-st casting.
Do not store the curing stone in direct sunlight for the first 7 days, at least.
A light weight concrete mix can be used for a wall veneer stone, or patio applications to make light weight concrete
Release agent will aid in releasing concrete or gypsum plaster castings from rubber molds. Release agent provides a clean, positive release and does not interfere with or affect surface detail and helps minimize air bubbles in finished castings. Properly used, mold release improves molding efficiency for a variety of casting applications and will actually lengthen the life of your production mold.
