The projects range from a relatively simple planter to the more elaborate decorative walkway and water feature. Included are directions for crafting a relief panel, a unique sculpture, a sandcast bowl, a carved trough, and more. Molds, materials, texturizing, finishing, casting, and other methods are explained, and illustrations are included to better illuminate key details. You'll learn how to make a variety of garden statuary and accessories, and it's easy to adapt the techniques offered in this book to a wider scope of applications.
For the starving artist or the enterprising crafter, Creating Concrete Ornaments for the Garden is an especially good investment. Readers can learn to master a trade that can be transformed into real profit—garden sculptures are often hot sellers at craft fairs and local artist markets!
Sherri Warner Hunter, the book's author, is also the writer of the bestselling title Creating with Concrete, and her talent and creativity is just as prevalent in her latest effort. Although the descriptions of each project might be a little difficult to grasp at first, if you take a hands-on approach to learning each technique, you'll learn to master Sherri's expert methods in no time.
