Marble is a hard type of stone that can be particularly challenging to carve and sculpt. Instead of creating a sculpture, such as a statue, from actual marble, you can make a bonded marble statue created from marble powder and powdered resin that will look and feel like actual marble. The bonded marble statue can be carved and chiseled more quickly than a statue carved out of solid marble.

Things You'll Need

  • Marble powder
  • Powdered resin
  • Bucket
  • Paint stick
  • Mold
  • Rock chisels

Combine marble powder and powdered resin into a bucket in the proportions of two parts marble powder to one part powdered resin. Mix well.

Pour one part water into the mixture. The mixture should be runny and will resemble thin pudding. Add in a little more water if the mixture is too thick. Stir well with a paint stirrer.

Pour the marble mixture into the mold you are casting. Allow the mold to set for at least 6 hours.

Take the bonded marble statue out of the mold. Chisel the bonded marble with rock chisels to refine the edges and add details.
