Wet carving sand mix concrete is a simple and inexpensive way to create durable sculpture. Sand mix concrete consists of 3 parts sifted sand and 1 part Portland Cement, plus water. Once combined, the mixture is placed in a form and after it has set sufficiently, about 3 to 4 hours, the form is removed and carving begins. A typical carving session is 5 to 6 hours. The stages of the workshop are determined by the medium because the setting process is time governed. First time sculptors can make a planter or small sculpture. Making a vertical piece is much easier than something flat as the material falls away while carving.
Materials: Bring any sculpting tools you may already have, or pottery tool-kits are available for $21.50 at Mark Arts.
