A toilet-visit can be a dull thing to do if you don't have your smartphone to pass the time, this why I made a interesting and eye-catching tissue holder. Why concrete? I always wanted to experiment with this rough but beautiful material.
Round shapes in concrete look futuristic and it always made me wonder how you have to create them. If you want to know it too, follow my steps and don't forget to vote (if you like it)!
Step 1: Research and Design
A little scheme:
Step 2: Creating the Mold
Go to your nearby carpenter for assistance or make it yourself!
For the inner hole I used a pvc-tube. (as you will see in the next step)
Advice: put some plastic foil on the inside of the mold, it will give the concrete a flatter surface.
Step 3: Molding the Product
1 : close the mold firmly
2: Attach the pvc-tube (I used a triangle on the bottom, it won't move) I holded the little one by hand, you may want to have someone to help you..
3: Put some wire mesh in the curve (stronger product)
4: Pour the mortar in and press on it to make sure the space is filled completely
Step 4: Unmolding
Advise: cut the pvc-tube in the length once, it is easier to take it away!
Step 5: Finishing
To keep it in the hole, attach a little cap with bigger diameter than the hole.
Step 6: Use It!
I attached it to the wall with Bison-glue.... ;)
