This chicken (using Lipka clay, YouTube) is ready for the outdoors. I sealed the cement with Minwax polycrylic, painted with outdoor paints and sealed again with Rustoleum spray. Unfortunately, I found it a little hard to work with and it did not store in frig as it was advertised to, got rock hard.
These gnomes were made with another papercrete recipe I found @venna’s nature on YouTube. Easy to mix (Portland cement, thin set mortar powder, PVA glue and toilet tissue), can be made in small amounts, it will harden if not worked with quickly and dries nicely. They were sealed the same as the chicken and are sitting outdoors also. Will check on them in six months for wear and tear….I have to say that after using the cement clay I still prefer paper mache. 🙂
