Hello, I wanted to make a special flower corner for my house from succulents and cacti. And creating a decorative image in this corner using concrete flower pots …
hello welcome to my channel for a long time I was thinking of making concrete pots for my cacti and succulents, finally I found time and made the concrete pot I wanted, let’s watch the production process together, I used kalekim 1051 in mortar making, it contains 1051. Also, when the materials I need to add are combined with water, I take Kalekim 1051 and slow it down. I add water slowly and start mixing. The most important thing you need to pay attention to here is to mix Kalekim 1051 well, that is, there is no lump in the mortar, so I added water slowly to prevent clumping. I used 3 kg Kalekim 1051. I plan to make it in 6-7 small bowls. The cement mortar should have the consistency of honey (2 waters). I added a glass of Kalekim 1051 to 1 glass of water) to Z from time to time and continued mixing. e After I prepared my cement mortar, I started to prepare the plastic containers that I will use as molds by slowly adding water until I reach the desired consistency, be careful by lubricating the inside of the plastic containers well, if you oil well, you can take the pot out of the mold easier. I will use it as an inner mold. I fill it with stones and also make weights I mostly fix it with tape One important thing to keep in mind with this process is to use a little more oil because the better you oil the molds, the easier they will come out and you don’t need to sand your pan after removing it from the mold, the result is a smooth and clean exterior, so make sure you lubricate well, because you need to find the cement mortar center well. it is liquid, if you adjust your center point well, the inner shape may shift. After filling all my shapes with cement mortar, there is no problem, I left it to dry. Note: While the drying time in summer is 1-2 days, this time it can be in winter, it can be up to 3 days. I took out my pots and left them to dry for 3 days and left one in the mold now you can see how I took it out of the mold, I pull the inner shape up with medium force and you can easily remove the inner shape by dragging it from the right and left, then turn the shape and tap it from right to left to move the flower pot as you can see, it comes out easily actually I was a little scared when I left one pot in the mold when the others came out it’s not broken but what if it does? But that didn’t happen either, and the rims of the pots that came out of the mold may be a little rough due to air bubbles. take it easy, since your pots are not completely dry, I didn’t sand much because I want it to stay natural, so if your rubber is thicker than you think, I’ll just need to get some roughness. You can use a coarser sandpaper to expand it, I’ll wet the pots well after sanding yes I’ll wash the pots thoroughly under water again! this allows the pots to draw water again. In this way, the pots dry later and are more durable. Be careful not to be harsh while washing. Be careful not to break or tear the pans as they are not yet completely dry. I turn the dust and sand-washed pots and leave them to dry. My pots were left in the mold for 3 days. After washing for 3 days, they waited and it was ready to paint at the end of 6 days (note: you can minimize this time in total 3 days, in summer 1-2 days in the mold, 1 day washing time It took longer because I made it in winter) You have to be patient while making the concrete pots that I prepared just before the mortar, I poured it into the mold, the next day I disassembled it, I sanded it, I painted it, I used it in the evening, my well-dried pots can be painted now. It broke because it didn’t dry, but I couldn’t take it off. At that moment, another idea came to my mind, I didn’t throw it away so that I could do another project with it, I put it aside right after this video, I will probably share this video with you (note: I did not share the video because it was not what I wanted) you can use many types of paint as paint, normal I used whitewash because the house The silicone erasable paint I use in my work is very useful. they shoot a pencil, but nothing happens, we erase it, it is another reason; I wanted the pots to be suitable for my decoration, I cut a dish sponge in half, added a little more water to the first color I would use, light gray was foaming without flickering, I carry the color I prepared with the help of a sponge, it’s like making a buffer on the places I want to paint, so I apply thinner and more, I do this process 2 times without a break. As the third layer, I dip the sponge in the paint and make it like paint. As a second technique, I show a brush from top to bottom. "sponge effect" -When painting with this technique, I dip the sponge in the paint and just make a buffer. I apply 2-3 layers without a break. I make 1 stick, then 2 sticks and 3 sticks without a break. I use it on the third layer, I use more paint to create color bubbles, this is a very good technique now I take my 2 colors, I use the dark gray dark gray a little thicker as a brush, as you can see, I use the sponge from top to bottom, as you can see, from top to bottom, paint in a thick layer and in one direction, I painted the dark gray parts of the pot that we just finished "sponge effect" -Technical again, I color my sponge and paint it from top to bottom like a brush. To make the concrete part visible, I only leave space in two color palaces. I painted all the pots with these two techniques. The pots were ready for 4 hours. After finishing the paint, paint them as you can see. then if you gently wipe the edge between the concrete and paint with your finger, the shield colors will match, be careful when using tape unfortunately I had good quality tape in my hand and I had to use it because the paint leaked into the concrete no matter what I do this is a common problem with concrete pots and the solution is very easy I can use a fine sandpaper Pay attention to the parts of the paint that have leaked where I don’t want them. If you sand slowly, be careful not to damage the painted part. It’s okay. You can use the sandpaper like an eraser to remove any leaks. I don’t want the pots to damage the furniture. I use homemade paper (Eva) with glue on one side, I cut circles from Eva and put them under the flower pots so that the flowerpots do not damage the furniture. they can stick the felt with silicone, you can stick the thick fabric with silicone or you can spray the silicone on the four corners, let it dry and use it, they can definitely find a solution to this situation, it was very nice, I can slide it wherever I want. I used synthetic yacht varnish as a varnish, I admire yacht varnish because it is a very durable varnish It is very resistant to scratches and impacts. I especially wanted a coat of varnish evenly distributed on it, the lacquer stays the same as the polished part, but the concrete part absorbs the varnish and it doesn’t look like it has been varnished this way. polish the pots considerably, even if you have a coat, it will be much more useful if you want to make a large pot and paint it, it will be much more useful. It is not easy to get it. Here is a tip for you: put the pot in a glass and paint, you can apply the paint more easily if you turn the glass from the bottom like this you can paint without leaving fingerprints, the painting process is over and it takes 8 hours, now I can do one last step and plant flowers in the pots. It is very useful because I throw it away. I draw a circle according to the bottom of the pot and cut it. I make 5 mm cuts all around the pot. Then I make 4-5 holes in the middle with a pointed object, close the small cuts inward and put the tiny sieve I prepared at the bottom of the pot so that when you water the flowers, water it drains and leaves the soil Now I make sieves in all the pots and plant the flowers Let’s see how they will look I planted flowers in pots I prepared a beautiful succulent cactus corner for my house I hope you like it I hope you like it I hope you will apply this project because it is a project that requires a little patience I will tell you the cost soon you won’t believe it it is similar in shape but from the picture I had different very stylish pots. These pots cost me only 8.5 teaspoons. I think you can definitely make 8.5 teaspoons. If not, please click bye until see you in another video
