    Welcome, king! We do have some folks who enjoy playing around with it - under the member galleries you should find some photos from Bethie, her garden has all sorts of hypertufa goodies in it.

    Take a look around, and enjoy. Glad to have you.

    Hi king, I am into garden crafts, check out my tutorial on glass garden totems. Bethie does hypertufa, Toni is big into making garden ornaments from "junk" and so am I. I am sure there are more on here, but I am brain dead right now, past my bedtime. Welcome to the Stew and don't be a stranger. I would love to see pictures of your work. Where do you hale from.

    Hi Cajun, I'm a west coast guy. Malibu area. Been casting/sculpting planters and such in cocrete and hypertufa and love the stuff. If I can fiure out the system here, I'll be glad to post some pictures. Trying to find the "galleries" right now.

    I hope to try my hand at hypertufa and concrete casting one day. I really want to do some leaves. I have giant elephant ears and I want to do some of those in concrete. And some smaller type of leaf to use as hose guides. Can't wait for some tips.
