How to Seal Stepping Stones

Making personalized stepping stones from a concrete mixture and mold is a great family project. Each family member's stone can become a long-lasting memento when they are incorporated into a garden area or set on a pathway. To keep the personalized decorations from becoming worn, a sealer can be applied to the surface of stepping stones. Protecting the surfaces of purchased stepping stones with a sealer application is also a good idea.

Things You'll Need

  • Concrete sealer

  • Newspaper

  • Soft paintbrush

Step 1

Place a stepping stone on the newspaper.

Step 2

Apply the concrete sealer over the entire top surface of the stepping stone with the paintbrush, making sure the sealer is brushed into any indentations or engravings.

Step 3

Let the sealer dry for 24 hours.

Step 4

Repeat the application three times, making sure the sealer dries thoroughly for 24 hours after each application.
