Default Foot shaped stepping stones

Hi

A bit of a long shot, but I've looked just about everywhere.

Does anybody know where I can get stepping stones in the shape of a foot in the UK? Failing that, a footprint shaped concrete mould would do.

Any helpful would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

As I already bought an angle grinder for paving and other purposes I'd
cut them from the least expensive slabs that the sheds sell.
Curves can be formed by a multiple of angled cuts. Then again, a very
artistic interpretation of a foot shape could be achieved with the
minimum of cutting. A template can speed the job up considerably.

Make your own mould...........cut a wooden block to shape and create a plaster
cast from that. You might even be able to your polystyrene to make the shape....

I heard or read a tip from Bob Flowerdew. If you want stepping stones
in turf, cut the shapes you want out of the turf, where you want them,
and fill with some sort of concrete mix.
