Cement garden figure

Good day to all. On the street in April. Many gardeners are already preparing for the summer season. They not only plant plants in their garden, but also love to decorate it. Recently, it has become especially fashionable to decorate your garden-garden with handicrafts - plastic bottles, tires, and so on. I also decided to decorate my garden with a hand-made craft. And I made a forest clearing with mushrooms and hemp. I needed to make crafts: - A semicircular plastic plate and a small plastic ball. - Cement, sand, water. - Disposable cups (volume 0.5l. and 0.1 l.). - Knife. - Form for pouring (old leaf for the oven). - Brushes. - Oil paints. - Plastic bottle of green color. - 5-liter plastic bottle. - Primer for painting. - Masking tape. - Scissors. - Matches, candle. - Sandpaper. - Clay. - Additional decor (flowers, butterfly, bo rd Ladybird). first I took a plastic bowl with a round bottom, for insurance smeared it inside a drop of sunflower oil to mushroom hat got out well.Spread the cement solution and pour into the plate. As you probably already understood, this is the future mushroom cap.

A little later, when the cement had already grabbed, but still not quite stiffened, I took one-time a glass with a volume of 0.5 l, cut off the bottom of it and put it on top of the cap, bottom down and also filled it with a solution of cement. The mushroom is ready.

Left the mushroom to dry for a couple of days in a warm place. Then, without any effort, I took it out of the form, I also took off the glass from the leg. I also made two small mushrooms. Hats I poured into a small plastic ball, which first cut in half, and the shape for the legs were disposable cups of 0.1 liters. When the mushrooms are completely dry, I sand all the uneven edges with sandpaper.

Since I wanted to make a clearing, I needed a mold to fill it in. I thought for a long time of what to do it and then I came up with the idea to use an old sheet for baking in the oven. , poured it with cement mortar and installed inside three stump harvesting and mushrooms. All this left to dry for another couple of days.

When everything froze and began to stick together well, I began to shape the hemp Once again I mixed the mortar of cement, sand and water, slightly wetted the stump billet with water and began to apply cement to it. I smoothed out all the irregularities with a wet brush. Inside the stump, I also applied cement to the sides of the bottle and to the bottom. When I liked the shape of the stump, I left it to dry until completely dry. That's what happened.

Then I again sanded to smoothness.The remaining dust swept away with a soft brush. Put a primer for painting. When the primer is dry, I painted everything with oil paint. The stump turned brown, the caps of the mushrooms were painted on top of dark brown and the bottom was light brown, and the grass was green.

It gave time to dry paint and then took up the additional decor of the forest clearing. I took a plastic bottle of green and cut off a strip from it and with the help of scissors I made it into grass shape. I deliberately cut off a non-even strip, as the grass should be of different heights.
