Smile Artificial Stones

Hello everyone and thank you for accepting me to your nice community.

I like painting on stones, but I live far from the sea and the only stones I can get are river stones. Most of them are broken or come in strange shapes, but I need nice round ones for my paintings. I tried to make artificial stones using concrete (cement & sand mixture) and silicone molds, but no matter how much I tried - there were always too many bubbles or the surface wasn't smooth and even. Can anyone give me a piece of advice regarding making your own faux round stones? Any help? Thanks in advance.

Why not just buy river rocks online? You can get them pretty cheap from craft supply stores. I got two bags recent and got a good amount of them for under $5.
