Spray Painted Faux Stones on Concrete using a concrete path form from the home improvement store.

Spray Painted Faux Stones on Concrete Patio

I decided to spruce up my concrete patio by spray painting a stone design on it. It was very easy and it only took about 2 hours, not including the time it took to dry. This is the BEFORE picture. And AFTER (The decorations on my patio can be seen here and here). I used a push broom to clean the patio with the waterhose and bleach.

papercrete instead of hypertufa~NO Cure Time~The basic recipe for papercrete is approximately 3 parts paper pulp, 2 parts portland cement and 1 part perlite and other optional fillers. Getting the paperpulp made to the right consistency is key. Too wet and the mixture is slumpy and if too dry – crumbly. Make small batches to experiment and get your mixture to your liking.

a hypertufa recipe that uses shredded paper instead of vermiculite and peat moss

You, Me, and Hypertufa

You, Me, and Hypertufa a funny name, a fantastic material! Hypertufa is an old material originating in the peat bog regions of England and Ireland. It is a man-made substitute for Tufa rock. It’s a funny word and I get a kick out of the many ways people try to pronounce it, “Hypertooba” , being one of my favorites. Hypertufa roughly translated means “false earth”. Real tufa rock is found in limestone country especially where water has been involved in the wearing and leaching out of the…
