OH MY GOODNESS!!! I'm making hypertufa goodies with the leftovers. Ready to see what I did ???
|I started with a silver plate bowl and a tin heart mold.|
|Too holey!!! But, not bad ....|
|Way too holey and not enough texture.|
See the difference in the sides of each piece???
|A glass votive and a |
small glass Christmas ornament.
|The votive is now a mushroom. Not bad!|
|The small glass ornament up close.|
|Just break the glass. Not enough texture. |
I won't do this one again.
|Silicone molds I used for soaps.|
|A rose!!! SWEET! Still too holey!|
|Tiny hearts... yay!!!|
|Fresh from the mold. Just brush your finger |
over the edges and they clean up real nice!!!
|Old Indigo Dye!!! What??? HUH??? |
YES! I'm going to use it. Why throw it out?
That nasty water ... LOL!!! I put the lid on it and forgot about it. SO! The next batch of hypertufa is getting this as it's water. Will it smell different? That water smells like the dye ... icky!!! Will it give the piece a little color? Green or blue??? The water is green, but when exposed to air it turns blue! OH MY! What will I get?
For me,,, my art is all about will it work? An experiment. I just love to try things. Like the next batch of leftover concrete is getting a new recipe (less perlite, not so holey!), then torched. YEP! I'm taking fire to it!!! YUM! LOL! If nothing else ... I'll have tons of fun!!!!
Talk to ya soon! Thanks so much for stopping by!!! Shell
