    Slater's Hardware sells diff. size molds... probably the easiest way & you can make more than one. I've seen a few DIY versions, made one myself using large plastic bowl to mold half a stone. Attach bowl to already molded half, cut hole at bottom of bowl ( now top of mold), pour cement in. Kinda works, but difficult to do this way. You can also use a big rubber ball (fitness ball) to make a FG mold with.

    Are you looking to make the stone with a mold? Or make a mold (plaster) and a stone?

    If you want to purchase molds then I would go with Slater stone molds, here is their website: http://www.slatershardware.com/stonemolds.html. For smaller stone molds you could also go with Hybrid Athletics molds: http://www.hybridathletics.net/stone_molds.php

    Another option would be to make mold using a swiss ball if you do not want to purchase a mold, that is why I asked about which option you were looking at.

    Video on how to make atlas stones using the molds:
