Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Strong, versatile, and amazingly easy to work with, concrete is the ideal medium for outdoor art and long-lasting, practical projects for the garden. And, best of all, it doesn't cost a lot of money or require special equipment; everything you need is right at the local home improvement center, ready and waiting. A celebrated teacher has gathered the tried-and-true techniques used by sculptors and folk artists, and then tailored them perfectly for low-tech surroundings and personal expression. Work with molds; form over armatures; model or carve with concrete; take advantage of technical advances to develop lighter, stronger structures; and treat concrete surfaces with mosaics, embedded objects, incising, and coloring. For dazzling outdoor embellishment, craft Garden Critter Stepping Stones, a Trough Planter, Birdbath, Little Lady Fountain, and a jazzy border. Every one of the 25 projects will open up new creative horizons!

Synopsis:

"Decorated concrete figures have recently moved out of the realm of eccentric folk art...into mainstream yards and gardens. Here are projects...for making mosaic stepping stones, birdbaths, carved planters, and art figures...grouped by skill level and offer step-by-step instructions on how to mix concrete, make molds, and embed mosaics. The finished projects are heavy, year-round installations...a good practical book for public library craft and garden collections."--Library Journal.
