I recently have decided I want to play with concrete, so I got some supplies and got to work. My kids’ marching band participated in a local university band day where they spent the day with their marching band and got to perform a song with them at half time. My kids’ band teacher/director is an alum of the university marching band, so I downloaded a photo of our HS band and made it into this commemorative coaster.
(Image and band name blurred for safety.)
Then, I got to thinking about other things I could make with concrete, and as @aimr can confirm, I went down an Etsy rabbit hole.
I did not even know molds to make concrete decorations was a thing, but it is, and I had to have some!
So I ordered this bird and a couple gnomes from an Etsy shop based in Germany! Shipping was surprisingly quick!
As you can see, the mold worked! I need to fill it better and get air bubbles out more, but my first try was a success! I’ll have to paint her!
