Oh my goodness it’s Friday! And what a morning it’s been already! Up at 5.30am this morning and in the car with both kids one with pox by 7.10am... Don’t even ask it’s too long a story. This was my cement rhubarb leaf experiment that I did a while back. Don’t think I got around to showing you the results. There is still a bit of leaf left in the crevices but it will slowly rot away! I quite like it. I would probably recommend using a releasing agent on the leaf to make it a bit easier to remove but would definitely do again. Is there something you have been wanting to try for ages but not got around to it? You know the clips you see on social media and images on Pinterest? Have a wonderful weekend everyone. My husbands back today so looking forward to a weekend with him around. Enjoy! #rhubarb#rhubarbleaf#rhubarbleafcast#cement#cementcasting#gardensculpture#gardenart#art#casting
I think this might be my favorite thing I’ve ever made with cement. Not to mention this awesome new plant I just got. The pot was cast in bubble wrap, and I’m loving everything about it, from the shape (I used a flower pot for the outside shape) to the way the bubbles aren’t all orderly, to the subtle creases. I just wish I had a bigger mold for the center cavity so my new plant has more room to grow.
Making cement garden castings is easy and inexpensive using latex molds - though a bit tie consuming while waiting for latex to dry in between coats it gives you more time for snacking or drinking a previously unspoken benefit.
