A Cattail Concrete Fireplace Mantel I created by Sand-Casting

Sand-Casting is a very affordable method to create art and sculpture for Garden Rooms, etc. Plus it is lots of fun and you DO NOT Need a Model and your Mold is cheap and reusable sand!

    Sharron it is the cheapest way to create anything! Sand and Portland Cemet are Cheap :)) I've been single for 25 plus years ...I have learned to be frugal :/
