Portland Cement

17 May

After experimenting with different kinds of plaster and cement, I’ve found a fantastic new material: white Portland cement– basically sidewalk. And at $20 for a 94-lb bag of powder, it’s virtually free. Here’s a moon I cast in cement with a little pillow of steel wool mixed in and no sand. I sanded it smooth and used Johnson & Johnson floor wax on it. Voila! Next, I’ll try to see how closely I can imitate the look of real sculpted marble.
