Papercrete versus Concrete:

Papercrete is a lot lighter than concrete. It is porous like Hypertufa.

It is cement mixed with paper pulp. Multipurpose Papercrete mix: 3 x ready to use Paper Pulp, 2parts cement, Water as needed to get the consistency you want for your project. Pouring = yoghurt/custard consistency, for scultping/shaping you need the consistency of bread dough.

 

The appearance of whatever it is one makes depends entirely on what (egg carton, brown cardboard, magazine pages, newspaper, etc.) pulp one uses.

Papercrete is a lot of fun to work with because one is not restricted to mixing paper pulp only, add crushed dried leaves flowers grass etc., to add surface interest to the final product.

Unsealed Papercrete pots bowls bags are great to use as planters. Due to its porousness, strategically placed moss and lichen will grow on the outside surfaces.

Concrete Cement Beton Papercrete

Concrete is best mixed according to standard instructions. Or use premixes such quick/fastcrete.

Concrete Craft Mixes Recipes Additives, such as cement oxide colour pigment powder, natural dried flowers, leaves, grass, polystyrene pearls or worms may be added. One can either expreriment or search online for mixes others have used. A General rule can be applied: Additives other than colour pigment powders can be considered aggregates. = 1part Water, 2parts Cement, 3 parts aggregates (2parts of unconventional aggregates + one part sand is another option.

A good easy multipurpose

Concrete Cement mix for Crafting is:

1 part Cement 2 Parts Sand (aggregate)

+/- 1 Part Water

CAUTION: Add water slowly bit by bit

to avoid ending up with cement "soup". However, if that happens simply add more cement and aggregate until you have the required consistency. If you have no experience working with Concrete Cement and aggregates, we recomment to have a dry Cement and Sand mix on stand by to fix your mistake of adding too much water.

The all purpose Crafting Concrete Cement mix should have the consitency of Yoghurt or Custard. It can be poured into moulds or with a little less water shaped or sculptured into a free form.

Concrete made with Cement and
Water only is not very strong, but can be used for very small items like Hearts Name Gift Tags Stars Balls or Tealight Candle Holders.

Concrete Gift Name Tags Stars Hearts

Concrete Tree Trunks are made with Cotton Circles dipped into Cement + Water mix (the Cotton is the aggregate then draped over a Tumbler Pipe or toilet cardboard core. Make an indent at the top for a Tealight Candle, Egg, Paperclips, etc. Arrange the Concrete dipped Fabric to resemble a tree trunk. Let dry for a few days. Take out the Tumbler or whatever else you used as upright. Now Paint the Tree Trunk with different shades of brown.

Concrete String Wool Cone Trees are made with the same mix as the Tree Trunks/Stumps. Wind the String/Wool dipped into Natural grey or white Cement+Water mix and wind it around a Cardboard Cone sized to suit your application. Let it dry and remove the Cone Template. You can achieve colour and colour hues by painting the strings or with coloured Fairy String Ligths. 1m Copper Lights work well and are easy to insert. We recommend a coat of clear varnish/sealer for outdoor use. Any Polyurethane sealer will do the job.

Craftwizards know what mixes and finishes to use depending on what the final product is used for and what it has to look like.
