ArtMinds™ Stepping Stone Keepsake Kit 2.2 5 6 6
Must mix in bucket Based on Previous reviews I mixed in a separate bucket dumping both packets into the water at the same time. Then once mixed, quickly pouring into the mold. I had about two minutes to place my childs hand print, then frantically place the gems. I bought glass gems as they will hold up better than the plastic ones in the kit. Turned out great!

DO NOT BUY!!!! The problem with this product is using warm water as directed the plaster set up before I finish mixing the second bag as directed over the course of two minutes. Didn't even get a chance to decorate or place hand prints. I am very upset that I wasted my money. I warn everyone to avoid this product. April 17, 2015
Great Gift Due to the other reviews, I made sure to stir the wet mixture in a bucket beforehand, not in the mold as instructed. I also made sure it sat for 48 hours before removing the mold. There was no cracking at all. I'm looking forward to giving this gift at Christmas. December 17, 2014
Don't bother! I received this gift for Mothers Day and was excited to try it out with my 6-year-old daughter. The box says 6+ and we couldn't do this kit together with me doing most of the work, so there's no way she could have done this with minimal help from me (as the instructions say is possible). First, the plaster drys incredibly fast making it impossible to stir in all the plaster in time to make it smooth for the mold. Second, if you want to decorate the front of the stone (where the mold is indented for decorative purposes) you'll have to stick with paint. How on earth is anyone supposed to put the stones down first, THEN pour in 2 cups of water and stir constantly to mix the plaster?! You'd stir the stones all over the place! Third, you're supposed to be able to make two stones but they give you one stir stick, which is now covered with dried plaster and useless for trying to make a second stone. My daughter is devastated that her gift to me is a massive failure and it's far from her fault. June 2, 2014
DO NOT BUY- better brands out there I posted this on amazon.com as well. I hated this kit so much I threw it away and immediately logged on to review it. I bought it because it looked simple enough and the prefabricated design mold looked really nice. Let me start out by saying I have purchased 4 kits and made 3 stones today , all Art Minds kits ones (buy those instead), and they are done and drying right now. I followed the directions to this one and poured the water into the mold, mixing the contents of the first bag, stirring then mixing the contents of the second bag. It was messy, tough to work with and dried, literally within 3-4 minutes . Its supposed to be ages 6 and up, Im well over 6 years old, and like I said, its in the trash. The plaster dries WAY too fast and is hard to mix. By the time I had gotten one section mixed, everything else had dried in lumps. Trying to pry those lumps out and mix them, even after adding more water, ended up flinging plaster all over the kitchen. The accessories you are supposed to decorate your stone with are kinda cute, ill end up using them for another project. Im definitely happier with the Art Minds stones , Im glad I purchased 3 of those and only 1 of these. May 29, 2014
Avoid, Find a better product! This is a horrible and misleading product. The picture depicts two vastly different stones, but the only mold you will receive in the box is the heart shaped one. On top of that, the instructions are very unclear on what needs to be done. When pouring in the mixture, you are instructed to pour two cups of water and 1 bag of cement. You are then told to "repeat the process with the second bag of cement." What is unclear is if you need to add another 2 cups of water or just add the sand. Since the mixture was very watery, I assumed that we only needed to add the cement. Unfortunately I was wrong on the first try as the cement began to harden very quickly on once pouring the second bag, to the point that there was no way that adding more water was going to fix the issue. On the second try, we repeated the water, only to find that 4 cups made the mixture entirely too watery. We ended up trying to pour out the at least a cup worth until the mixture seemed just right. Even on sale, this product was just not worth it. We let it dry overnight until it was nice and hard and yet it still ended up breaking around the edges upon trying to get it out. We were very careful and followed the instructions to the letter. Most likely this was due to having to alter the process with mixup of the water, but either way the instructions were not clear and the cement needed more than 2 cups and definitely less than 4. The better idea is to pay a little more and get a better quality product. May 11, 2014
