6.) Use a metal spatula to smooth the top of the Quikrete.  Press any decorative stones, shells or glass so that they are flush in the Quikrete. If you want you can press cookie cutters into the krete to create patterns or hands for handprints. Press letters into the exposed Quikrete if you wish. You will want to work quickly because the Quikrete dries fast.

7.) Allow the stepping stone to dry at least 24 hours before removing from the mold.
