Concrete can seem like a difficult thing to figure out, but it’s actually really easy to deal with. It’s a great medium for crafters to experiment with. With concrete, you can do a lot of the things you can do with clay, except you don’t need a kiln. Concrete air dries in a few days, and once it does it’s strong and safe for indoor and outdoor use. Plus, a bag of concrete is super cheap.
