Making funky and fun garden art is a knack. I'm always finding things that can be taken to the next level, or designing something from scratch.
There are lots of ways that the hypertufa hands can be displayed, depending on what you use to form them.
These are either draped over a round item such as a bottle, or formed and left to harden inside a plastic plant pot.
Because I save everything, I have a lot of choices, from plastic containers like yogurt or cottage cheese containers, to clay pots.
This is one time that being a hoarder pays off.
As they weather, the moss will grow in the crevices, and eventually, in time, lichen could be happy there too.
These don't need any special winter care, except to keep them dry if possible. There is nowhere for water to collect, which could freeze and crack, but they could break if they are immersed in water.
Think whimsy; display them in a small terracotta pot, with a handful of plants like a bouquet, or group them in a tray.
The original hypertufa hand - where it all started. This one catches the imagination and gets everyone fired up!
Make your own, and see what happens!
