Yesterday a group of us had an opportunity to join Dan and Ali of Henbogle and Signs of Maine at their lovely home and got dirty! They taught us how to create HyperTufa objects (a mixture of things that allow you to form planters and outdoor containers). It was one of the few really beautiful days that we have had and it was delightful.
Dan and Ali have a nifty setup: a small, electric cement mixer that mixed the cement, sand, peat moss and water just right. Plus, a big, beautiful yard to spread out in and enjoy the fun. And we can’t forget to mention that the potluck lunch was amazing!
We all brought tubs and were wowed by the collection of neat bowls and containers that the denizens of Henbogle use for their HyperTufa creations. And then we got to play! I made a small bird bath and a planter.
It was loads of fun. While my forms are curing, I am looking around for more containers to use for the next project. I think that my bird bath needs a base… and maybe some feet!
