Isn't concrete just amazing?! And draping opens a whole new dimensional art form. But don't worry, this tutorial is quite easy as he is a little fellow that is quite portable. He'll sit on your step and scare the bad ghosts away... Oh, by the way; it's super cheap to make... mostly things you'd through away anyways!

Step 1: Gather Your Stuff...

This is extremely low cost. After using many disposables for casting concrete I always look at containers destined for the trash/recycle in a new light. There are so many amazing shapes to be had. (but try not to pilfer through other peoples garbage) I substituted this fleece for the terry towel since I like the strength that polyester has. Fuzzy polar fleece has so much fuzziness to hold the concrete. The more fibres, the more can it hold the concrete.

Supply list

  • a large 2 litre plastic pop bottle (sealed and full of water)
  • Duct tape or packing tape
  • scissors
  • approximate 6" sponge ball (dollar store)
  • paint mix stick
  • styrofoam meat tray
  • 2 small baby food jars
  • 2 longer thin juice jars
  • plastic sheeting or bags
  • fabric that will absorb concrete (towel or fleece)
  • Portland Cement, water, mixing utensil/container
  • cheap acrylic paint
  • basic flat paint brush
