Hypertufa pots

These are some pots we made with "Junk" so I thought it would be fun to post them over here. I'll post a pic of the pot made with the bowling ball, and green glass bottle in the next comment. Is there a way to post more than one pic per message? Thanks for your interest!

Here are my 2 favorites. Colored with some tie dye solution we had left over. I filed the edges of the bottle so it's not sharp. No drainage, though, so I'll have to put gravel in the bottom.

RE: Hypertufa pots

Oh, I like those!!! I'll have to try that way of making pots.

RE: Hypertufa pots

Yes! It was pretty simple. Just use lots of mold release!!
(unless you want a glass jar in a concrete pot. ha ha)

RE: Hypertufa pots

Very clever. I make cement stepping stones and ornamental things in old jello molds and kids sand castle molds. I've been longing to do it lately, maybe i'll also mix up some hypertufa and try your method.
