I was looking at those hairy little suckers I made a while back and knew it was time to have some fun. SO! I took out the torch to burn off that hair. Then I realized I might like the look of burnt concrete.
|Here are the goodies I started out with.|
These are all leftover concrete pieces.
|See how hairy they get?|
|See the difference in the "holey" look. |
Some smoother than others.
(I'm working on that now!)
|The hairs are a fiber mesh for added strength.|
|These are recycled glass hearts.|
|Each one of these was made during different batches.|
|Notice the different colors of the concrete???|
ONE OF THESE WAS MADE WITH LEFT
OVER INDIGO DYE WATER.
OOPS. I forgot which one!
|I took the torch to these ,,, you can see |
the dark marks on the metal table.
|I like this look!|
|The same, but different! :)'|
|The sides of the hearts show the burn marks ...|
|more than their tops.|
|What do you think???|
What do you think of the color???
Do they look older????? or dirty????????
Is it worth the hassle to make them look like this??? I'm thinking not ... but??? I know ... that doesn't mean much!!! HAHAHA!!!
The small hearts will sell at Sorticulture $5 for 13 of them. A bakers dozen. Maybe I'll call them a gardeners dozen. The others will be $1 each! YAY!!!
