Create a lightweight sturdy three dimensional base for mosaic.
Gallery: Lightweight Concrete Sculpture
Take your work to the third dimension! Learn how to design and create your own lightweight concrete sculpture that can be covered in mosaics. This class covers the steps to design a simple 3-D form, including carving and shaping Styrofoam with hot wire and other foam shaping tools, and covering it with a strong weatherproof concrete surface. Students then create a small-scale model of their design using plastic clay.
