DIY Hypertufa Pot – 3

One more DIY tutorial for making a hypertufa pot, by Alan Lorence. Nice and easy, with flowing text instruction and plenty of pictures to help you along the way as you make the ‘tufa pot.

One thing I like particularly about this how-to article is the detailed discussion of the recipe and mixing method that it includes. Check it out at the link below:

DIY Hypertufa PDF eBook

Claudia Brownlie – a fellow garden art enthusiast who is way too deep in to DIY hypertufa publishes a PDF eBook that she calls ‘Hypertufa How-To Manual’.

With over 100 pages of step-by-step DIY information accompanied by scores of pictures, this eBook can show you how to make a variety of garden art objects using hypertufa, whether you are a beginner to the art of hypertufa or one with some experience.

Starting from basics like hypertufa recipe and safety information, this eBook goes to show you how to make a number of different garden art objects using hypertufa, such as pots, planters, troughs, balls, stones, leaves, sculptures etc. and promises to make you a ‘creative mud-pie maker extraordinaire’ by the time you get done with it. 🙂

While this eBook is not free to download (~$25), if you are in to DIY garden art and/or hypertufa, you certainly want to give it a try. (Claudia does offer a full refund if you don’t like her eBook for any reason or find it useful).

Playing with Hypertufa

As they say: When it rains, it pours. 🙂

If you can guess, I’m – rather coyly – trying to tell you that I’m posting one more link that deviates from my ‘strictly DIY – strictly hypertufa’ rules. Having said that, I do submit that this link is not exactly ‘non-hypertufa’ but on the other hand, it is not exactly a DIY tutorial either.

Published by a self-confessed ‘complicatingly simple gardener’, ‘Playing with Hypertufa’ is more of a running, pictorial commentary from Jester – a DIY gardening and garden art enthusiast and a blogger – of her practical experiences and experiments making various garden art objects with hypertufa.

Starting with the basic hypertufa recipe, she moves on to making bowls, pots, mushrooms and planters, all with pictures. I sure found her post enjoyable and useful; hope you will too:
