Concrete is one of the best materials for vases or planters, especially if you are going to use them outside. Let’s make a couple of bud vases using it, and a tutorial from plasteranddisaster.com will help us. Mix up the cement in small batches, making it slightly more liquid than the package called for so it would be easier to fill the molds. Carefully pour it into the molds, jiggling the sides to help it fill in and break up air bubble. Used an old paint stirrer to smooth the top into a pseudo-flat surface. Now let them sit for about an hour (if it’s fast-drying cement) before popping them out of the molds to check them out. Head over to plasteranddisaster.com to continue reading.
