Back in June, Concrete Concrete and Concrete Cat started working on a Secret project that we are now very excited to announce. We are teaming up on Kickstarter to bring you The Easy Make Concrete Kit! It's the easiest, funnest way to try concrete art and design in the comfort of your own home! The Kit has everything you need from Grey Matter Studio Concrete Mix to custom molds, mineral pigment and finishing wax.
Pre-order now exclusively on Kickstarter for Early Bird pricing of $45 CAD with FREE shipping to USA and Canada.
Concrete art and design - Made easy!
The Concrete Concrete Easy Make Kit allows you to marble and cast concrete objects in the comfort of your home! It includes everything you need to get started in the wonderful world of concrete art and design. No special tools or space is required with the Easy Make, just follow the instruction and in 24 hours you will make your very own amazing concrete objects.
Our Easy Make Concrete Kit has everything you need to make a marbled concrete cactus planter and a couple hex tiles or coasters.
What does your funding provide?
We have developed a great prototype and we're now ready to run production. We want to make a nice box, add printed instructions, and give you easy to use packaging. In order to do so, we need a minimum production run of over 1000 units to do printing, mold making, and custom bagging. This helps us keep the price accessible for you!
Grey Matter - Our specially designed mix is super strong and cures incredibly fast! Grey Matter was design for the rigorous needs of Concrete Cat art studio, they've been happily using it for over 3 years. Grey Matter is one of the most advanced concrete mix designs available to the average consumer in user friendly packaging and quantities.

Custom Molds - Our custom molds are designed by Concrete Cat and have been extensively tested by their studio to ensure ease of use for you! One planter and two hex tiles are the perfect objects to grace your windowsill, desk or table.
Measuring and Mixing cups - We take the guess work out of measuring your materials to make your life easy. Perfect measurements gives you perfect castings.
Stone Paper - A square of stone paper to sand and finish your bottom edges buttery smooth.

Support from the Mayku Formbox
We're incredibly fortunate to have the support of the Mayku Formbox team on this project. They've supplied us with a Formbox and materials to experiment with. Their support staff taught us the tricks to thermoforming.
