Curing Too Quickly?
I'm afraid that my first Hypertufa project is destined for failure. On 5/18, I attended a class and made a bowl shaped container using this recipe: 2 parts portland cement, 3 parts peat moss, 3 parts perlite and binding fiber. We returned the following nite to remove the form. Either I wasn't listening or we weren't told to do anything other than to keep the container "out of the elements for 3 weeks". The teacher said to put it on a covered porch or in a garden shed. Well, mine has been stored in my garage until today when I put it in my rather damp basement. I'm afraid that it has cured too quickly in the warm, dry garage.
Is my project doomed? What will happen to it?
Unfortunately, I just discovered your website. I wish I had read all of this great info earlier.
BTW - I loved the process and the end result and I'm hooked on Hypertufa!
Thanks for any advice you can give a beginner.
