I'm hoping to get around to experimenting with making cement pots over the summer. Anyone with experience have some good resources to study before I over extend myself once again?

I'd like to do more than the simple DIY, two bowls as a mould thing, but that's about all I'm finding on YouTube. The sand moulds might do, but I'd like to be able to make a few if I can get a good design.

One thing I'd really like to work on if I can get that far is textures. For example, I have a large round terracotta pot that's old and spawling on the sides, and I actually rather like the look. How could an effect like that be achieved?

Thanks for any help!

Thin layers of pure cement without the sand could do that trick. Force dry it and it should start chipping, if that's what you mean.
