Molds or pavers


Not sure where you live, but out here in Phoenix, decent pavers can be obtained for $1.30 a square foot. This doesn't include sand, mortar (for edges/footings), or labor.

Where did you find this mold? I have been looking for it online, and have not had any success.

Thank you in advance.

Molds or pavers


Devina, this is a four year old thread but if you need this type of mold for a similar project? I believe even hideous box stores sell the things in different patterns.

Depending on your project and how much concrete you have? You might contact local concrete artisans to explore concrete stamping. Concrete stamps come in all sorts of patterns but making it work takes real knowlege and craftsmanship.

Bob has it right. I use Hanover Prest Pavers on roofs. They are the only ones that hold up through freeze thaw. They are Pressed pavers, 8700PSI. They can take the abuse that mother nature throws at them.

I agree, trying to get concrete to cure properly with so little mass as that mold would hold isn't likely to go well.
They sell all kinds of pavers ready made, they sell cheap plastic or latex molds on Ebay to make your own too, but with one mold you are making 1 paver every 2-3 days since it takes that long before you can even get the cast out without breaking it.
I'm a sculptor and make rubber molds, but good rubber molds using quality materials is very expensive- $200 a gallon.
