If your tastes tend toward the unusual, these hands will appeal. Relax! These are ‘armless hypertufa hands 😀

Hypertufa is a ‘rock’ made from aggregates bonded together with Portland cement. It’s a manufactured substitute for natural tufa, which is a slowly precipitated limestone rock. Being very porous like the real thing, hypertufa is popular for making garden ornaments.

Here’s a great example of art meeting function – hypertufa hands!

You can easily make as many as you want as they’re simple to make, and they’re sure to be a talking point. All you need is the recipe for making hypertufa, mixing bowls, and rubber gloves!

These are perfect for planting succulents, and would make a great centerpiece on a table in your outdoor living space. You can also personalize them to fit the theme of your garden.
