Variations on hypertufa

tufftufa(Z9 coastal SC)May 25, 2006

Anyone have any experience with this product?

http://www.flex-c-ment.com

It is a vertical concrete stamping (or carving) application product.

I'd like to know of where to look for papercrete info, too.

Thanks

Re: Flex-c-ment - I don't have experience with it but did look into it a year or so ago. I contacted the distributor here, they don't sell this product to the public and to get your hands on it, you have to attend one of their workshops to learn their application 'technique'. That was more than I was willing to do just to play in the mud, so I let it go.

I think this stuff has interesting potential, but experimenting with different recipes found here could yeild a similar product. (rickharmer & tango - where are you?)

As for the papercrete, Marly had an amazing tutorial on papercrete.

What 'cha makin'???

Here is a link that might be useful: Marly's tutorials

I just like to mess around. My notion is that papercrete and hypertufa might make some really fine small pots to give away. The nice thing about things we make (onion relish, chutney, etc. and possibly this stuff) is that when you give it, the receiver does not feel obligated to gift in return. Since I retired and only work occasionally, I've got time and limited money.

Any you tufafolk seem like a crowd I'd like to hang out with, anyway.
