Just think a learning experience is never a wasted day! You will never succeed by not trying! It's the effort that counts, all that kind of stuff! Then go buy yourself a pretty planter and enjoy it!!!

Now now, hold the sarcasm *LOL* I think maybe try #3 will be a success *fingers crossed*. I really want to get good at this. I want to make some really big planters to fill with succulents.
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

I have found that really big planters can be very heavy, but the epoxy ones have been excellent over the past few years I have had them so far, and they are very light, but the soil inside weights them down. On sale they can be pretty cheap!

Get behind me Satan/Larry. Hilarious! I'm determined to master hypertufa. My 3rd attempt does look pretty good...at least it did not crumble when I lifted it out of the mold. However....it's so smooth....I guess I will have to get out a rasp or coarse file and rough it up a bit once it's dry. Now, I'm supposed to submerge it in water for 28 days.*gulp* I wonder if it will dissolve? Maybe I'll just cover it with damp cloths, like you do to cure concrete.

Hilarious! You just wait. One of these days, when I'm selling hypertufa pots to the Hollywood Stars and making a fortune as the Tufa Queen, then you'll be sorry. Hilarious!
