Cast stone moulds are typically used to custom design and create stone and tile for home remodelling. The cast stone created in moulds looks like cut stone, and is used in masonry and architecture. The advantage of cast stone is that it is much cheaper than natural stone, it looks like natural stone and it's easier to customise. The colour of cast stone is modifiable, and the stone is easy to cut into shapes. While it is easier to buy stone that has already been cast and pre-moulded, it is possible to buy cast stone moulds through specialised tools and masonry stores.
