You have been busy. How fun. I like the faces. You can copy things from magazines. I tried one or two projects and enjoyed them very much.

Thanks for sharing your photos Kathy. I've never tried hypertufa. Looks addictive!

Kathy, you are a very creative gal! I made two sort of oblong trough-type planters. DH drove over one!

How do you do the faces? I really like them.

I use alot of others ideas and make my own. I was hooked when I started. DH have a way of doing things like that. I had a leaf that mine hit. Thought it was way off the side but I thought wrong. Of course it was one of the nicest.

I started using one of those plastic masks from the craft store. But I have since made some molds from those masks you hang on the wall. I call them Mardi Grais masks.

Email me if you want more information. But be sure make it clear in the subject. My email seems to be messed up and I either don't get alot or they get deleted. Thanks Kathy

Does the mask press on top of the concrete or is the concrete layered over the mask. Can you use the mask again? I have a metal face, but I would not want her to be ruined.

Helen, I taped over the eye places and put the mask in a pan of sand to stabilize it. Then I lightly sprayed cooking oil (Pam or similar) on the inside. Add the turfa on that. Then I pop it out and use again. I would be afraid to do anything with the metal face. You would have to make a mold. I have made some pop of molds with pretty good success. My fear is that I can't get the mold off. Kathy

Thanks. I guess this is a next spring thing to think about because of the weather. I don't get past the thinking about it stage on lots of projects.
