my first concrete casting

a simple way of casting: a ready made form (old plastic cookie box) with my rubber shapes glued to the bottom. (if any one wonders: it's a basket with apples)
two days later
when the concrete is dry (and paler): colouring with copper sulphate

the right one (isn't mine) is coloured with iron sulphate

I really like your first piece of concrete.

I admire that you always experiment with materials and techniques that appear to be from other disciplines, that enrich your artistic work.

I look forward to your projects with this material.

wow...interesting...I like the way your work makes my mind search and figure out what the subject is...
Sometimes I feel my work too ridged...oh well...I guess it's time I am lacking and that experimental fun which needs time too.

love it.

very cool! I thought the baket was Snow White"s shoe at first with the apple, then i realized it was the basket. (:
New materials are always so full of possibility!
