Concrete Sculpting

I’m experimenting with a type of concrete for fine art sculpting. The concrete has additives in it to increase strength and hand modeling qualities and also to reduce weight, drying time and amount of water needed. It has the feel of a silky smooth and moist clay and is weather proof. The advantage is that it air dries and doesn’t require a kiln so is a way to hand sculpt and also make large artworks without special equipment. While researching I found this video from Path√© (always a favourite) of a sculpture from the late 1950’s making some brutalist looking contemporary figurative sculptures.
