Thank you for the encouragement ,, valleylynn Thank You! and lovemyhouse Thank You! , It will be a while with lots to do before I get back to this , But I will , last Time I used an air pump in a cooler . I was actually doing that to grow black brine shrimp . The algae got used for dressing around a few plants ,
I will find a few buckets to do that though and when next it happens , I will do the step by step formula , I have a few 3 and 4 year old threads , so I don't plan on disappearing anywhere for while ,, and besides while I have a few plants to get pots done for , I still really like the Epoxy pot that happened , I wont give up or forget that one for sure Smiling
Thanks again , back in a while

I am not back to anything exciting yet but here is a 1 to 1 paper and cement . long tray this is a first , this is pretty big , not heavy at all . I am hoping , something that takes freeze and thaw here is a little difficult , sometimes

Looks good Jim, keep the production line running ! I sometimes use a rectangular loop of wire for extra strength if I'm worried about the mixture strength. Old wire coat hangers are very useful !

I am having a bit of trouble falling asleep Shrug! , so here I am Smiling

I built this from a junked pile of swing set parts Interesting thing happened as I was reading and remembering about fibers (I won't know about this until next season ) I was using Magnesium Hydroxide and paper (different kinds of paper ) The water in the mix ( as all the paper does not dissolve) contains tiny smaller than the eye can see fibers. Anyway while I was using paperkrete to do the ends and center of this , little square clear crystals were ocassionally coming up as I was smoothing the cement ,, Shrug!
Neat if it sets like false diamonds made of Magnesium and silica , Thumbs up Micro fiber Diamonds !!! Confused Blinking

I was looking for micro fiber ideas besides one that causes mosquitoes or easier than one that does , Smiling
Foam was being used about various places it just sitting in the middle space as of whatever ,,




Thumb of 2015-08-21/jimard8/05f735 a little messy in the garage , oh well twice as long as a lawnmower this one , Confused
