Typical Materials For Making These Summer Cement Crafts
- I find this smooth and fast setting cement to be the best for making crafts. I also like using this premade cement mix, which is not a rapid setting one.

- Disposable cup
- Durable nitrile gloves– I like these because they are so durable, you can rinse and reuse them
- Safety glasses
- Cork backed ruler
- Utility knife
- Jumbo straw
- Hot glue gun
- #200 Grit diamond sanding pad (or regular 220 should be fine)
- Transfer paper
- Epoxy resin 2:1
- Resin colorants– opaque– blue and white
- Sharpie Oil Marker
- Craft sticks
- Resin mixing cups
