The R2D2-like mold was made from disposable plastic containers, Easter egg half, foam packing material, shopping bag, tape, and a straw. It yielded an “Angry House” once formed with papercrete. The pattern of the roofline made it appear a bit ticked-off, but I liked it, so I left it. The papercrete felt really good and I have high hopes for this one!
This little guy was hand-formed over a small square plastic dipping sauce container. There was not much prep other than oiling the container and poking a paintbrush handle into the wet papercrete to form the windows, door, and chimney hole. This one was created from the leftover Angry House batch of papercrete.
This little “Hobbit Dome” was molded from the same materials as the Angry House, along with the center from a tape dispenser (for the doorway). It formed up alright, but I didn’t care for the papercrete consistency…too wet. It is still quite moist so I have my doubts that it will cure properly.
I’ll be de-molding the fairy houses tomorrow and will report back with successes and failures, so stay tuned . . .
