Another cheat post, because I started those last week as well.
I want to redecorate the front yard and therefore ordered some very cool latex moulds. I still have plenty of pouring concrete left from the renovations, so I can probably breed a lot of them.
Here’s the first, not so good attempts:
My attempts in supporting the moulds weren’t as successful as I thought they would be. The wings on this were supposed to be upright, which isn’t a big issue, but I also made my concrete too wet*, so when I tried to demould it after the recommended 5 days, it was still too wet and the tips of the wings broke off.
I left that one for a few more days to dry, which worked out well, but… the weight of the concrete pushed the head down.
For my next attempts I buried the moulds in damp earth. I’ll have to get myself some regular sand for the next ones, but I hope that this time they wont be flat.
Last one is a cute little croc, only that I broke off its tail, but that was easily fixed with some glue.
*As my dad said: It’s too dry, too dry, too dry right until it’s too wet.
