Free Form Concrete

I'm experimenting with RapidSet Cement ALL.  I soaked this cloth in a slurry of this rapid setting cement to create a hard free form surface.  I'm thinking this might be fun to use for free form sculpture and architecture.   I envision being able to make everything from flower pots to actual structures or garden art.  Possibly layering this over foam insulation to create light weight structures..

Taking that idea one step further a layer of expanding foam could be applied to this cloth and then covered once again with cement soaked cloth to create a very durable light weight insulated wall.  Larger structures could be created this way by draping the first layer over a tent, balloon, straw or even a few ropes to create the initial shape.

What a fun way to make a play house, or garden shed
