White Admiral butterfly admiring the grumpy guy
I made this grumpy looking hypertufa face - the mold was a piece of pipe, but the mix I used was kind of different.
I discovered that my native soil was very silty, so I sieved some to try in a project.
The mix seemed to be quite crumbly, so I made the mistake of adding too much water to make it more plastic. Oops. Then it tended to slump off the mold; however, the way it looks is kind of humorous. Obviously, someone else likes it too - the White Admiral butterfly is visiting to get the salt from the mix.
Eventually, I'll plant some Jovibarba or other hardy succulents in this guy - I accidentally damaged the bottom and it fell out while I was removing the mold, but that's okay - thinking outside the box, I'll just put him in a permanent position with a fishing pole and a sign that says 'I'd Rather Be Fishing!'.
