Today, I finally picked up my concrete cast from the workshop I attended a few weekends ago. Here are the results! Clearly I have a thing or 2 to learn about finishing… I was expecting the whole thing to be mega shiny, but it was only shiny on the side of the cast which was tilted slightly towards the ground (concave face)… Also, the aggregate sunk to the bottom, giving me a very gravelly bottom (!!) and a powdery top… And I obviously didn’t vibrate it enough as there are a fair amount of air bubbles on the top faces… Still – it was a fun experiment and I think the shape is quite nice – I think it could be thinner though. It’s at least given me some ideas for the future..!
