Bubble Wrap Terrapin

ShapeCrete has the unique ability to be packed onto a piece of fabric, or in this case bubble wrap, and then laid into a form while holding its shape. This project is a starting point for your creativity. It can be placed in the garden and filled with soil and seed. Given enough sunshine, time, and love, it will blossom into a beautiful and unique garden object.

STEP 1: Mix, Pack, and Place in Wok

Mix ShapeCrete to a Clay-Like Consistency, then pack it into the bubble wrap. Smooth it out to a thin layer and then let it set for a few minutes.

  • Just as the mix begins to set, lift it up and place it in the form. The bubble wrap will conform to the shape of the wok and create the domed piece.
  • Cover with plastic and let it cure for at least 24 hours.


STEP 2: Remove the Bubble Wrap

Peel away the bubble wrap and clean up any sharp edges with a diamond hand pad.
