It is available as a custom kit, giving you the experience of making your stone yourself while sharing some final moments with your pet.
In your kit, you’ll be given everything necessary to create a personalized memorial design. With our online canvas, we can even create a unique silhouette just for your beloved pet.
How It Works
Design and Order
You can start with a template, to create something stunning with minimal effort. Or, you can start from scratch, with many different images and fonts to choose from the possibilities are endless. Unlike other pet memorial stones, you can move the text and images around the surface to create truly unique and impressive designs. We add new images regularly, however if you want something specific you can add your own silhouette.
Receive the Ashstone Kit with Your Custom Mold

This includes: concrete pre-mix, water, stain, sealer and pigment. We do things quickly around here, your kit will be in the mail within two working days.
Mix in Your Pet’s Ashes. Pour and Set
The kit comes with a bag of high strength pre-mix concrete. To the concrete you mix in your pet’s ashes, the pigment and the supplied water. You mix the concrete in a heavy duty plastic bag, it’s all very clean and tidy. The Ashstone sets quickly to form a solid and durable memorial stone.
Color, Reveal and Seal
Now here is where the real magic happens. You’ve cast the stone, and it looks great, but now it’s time to make the design pop! First you apply a fast drying stain over the entire surface, then you sand off from the high areas to reveal your design in full contrast. Finally you apply sealer, which both enhances the depth of color and protects the surface for many years to come.
All off the steps, including how to use the designer, are explained in our Guide Video section.
