As usual, I can’t find what I want when I want it. I will remember about 2 a.m. In the meantime, one of you asked me how to make lion statues and gargoyles to put in the garden. Get this book.
Not only is this a very inspiring book, it has many recipes for your mixture of concrete and lots of different ways of putting it all together.
My spinning friends get together several times a year and we spend the day playing in the “mud” and sculpting things for the garden. I am definitely ready for another play day because I have all kinds of ideas for the next creation. I need a gargoyle or two, some stepping stones, a few balls (made by filling an old round globe from a light with mixture, letting it set, and breaking the glass when done), and more.
There are quite a few articles on line about creating concrete objects as well, from benches to birdbaths to monoliths. As you can see in open book pic above, you can even make a castle. This is like playing in clay all grown up and monster size.
Maybe Stonehenge or Easter Island statues could decorate the lawn…..
