Hello friends…Hope all are crafting great !!!!
I am very excited to share my creations using Itsy Bitsy's home brand, Little Birdie’s Craft Cement. The post is also my Design team post for Itsy Bitsy. Being an architect, have learnt all about cement and concrete, but never worked hands on with it. So in the middle of my excitement and concerns, ended up working on two projects …what if one cracks ???
To my happiness both the projects turned out great….no cracks and perfect unmolding. Craft Cement is a great material to create decor products with organic look. Have created two home decor products – a soap dispenser and a key holder.
Some interesting pictures and close ups of soap dispenser-
Ceramic knobs make great embellishment for the dispenser along with
beads and succulent flower.
Combination of Glass and Cement is elegant.
Explored stenciling with cement slurry and it turned out interestingly great.
Also check out textures created on plastic glass with cement mix and bubble wrap.
Working with cement can be addictive. Had learned about cement concrete reinforcement. Reinforcement is used when casting larger cement structures like columns, beams etc. Also used for shaping to create cement sculptures. Wanted to give it a try in a smaller way here and this gave shape to the next home decor piece – a key holder, for which I have used steel wire mesh as reinforcement. Wire mesh is easily available in any local hardware shop.
Here are some details of cement key holder-
Have used wire mesh as reinforcement to hold the two cement panels.
Wire mesh enhances the raw look of cement.
Decoupage and gold highlights compliment the natural look of cement.
Here's the link to the detailed stepwise tutorial of the cement creations.Read till the end to know how both can be used differently as well !!!
