How are ya??? It's been so nice around here lately I thought I'd go outside and see what happened to the concrete I poured a week ago. Some did well, well,,, some sucked! BUT! That's why I'm trying this early.
Concrete is something I've had fun with before. For Sorticulture I want to try to use things that are already here at the house. Things I've been saving and waiting to use. I have this cupboard with many glass lamp parts. Some shades, some columns. SO! Here's what a nice hypertufa mix did for me.
|I mixed up some hypertufa and threw it |
inside this old lamp column.
|The bucket was resting on this rod,|
keeping the rain off the piece.
|I like this!!! I can't wait to see |
it covered in moss!
|I added a few pieces of scrap metal.|
|Now I have a small garden totem.|
|Hide it inside your plants.|
|Or let it show from the middle of your plants.|
|This will only get better with age.|
Texture, texture and more texture!
For the next few weeks I'm going to be pouring tons of concrete into old lamp parts and what ever else I find that looks interesting. Wait until you see what the leftover concrete looks like! FUN!
Yes, these will be at Sorticulture. SOON! Okay, not until June. :)
