If you're wondering about the value of the information I've provided, please read these unsolicited, kind compliments I received from an honored "fellow" of the American Concrete Institute who purchased my eBook. (I could not have paid anyone to write this!) In addition, Sally is a past president of an ACI chapter, and was active for many years with the Quality and Specifications Committee of the Kentucky Ready Mixed Concrete Association.
Dear Claudia, Your eBook is amazing! You have incorporated a lot of sound technical and historical information, yet kept it readable and interesting.
I really like your emphasis on safety. I have seen the crippling effects of concrete poisoning on finishers, amateur and professional, who did not take necessary precautions. (I must admit to having had an occasional brush with contact dermatitis when I was not careful enough around freshly mixed concrete in my 33 years of working with it.)
It is a top notch book. Its practical suggestions should prevent a lot of common errors for people just discovering the material.
And here are a few more totally unsolicited testimonies from people who have taken the time to write to me and personally thank me for the information I've shared in my eBook:
Dear Claudia, I had to write to tell you how impressed I am with the information in "The Hypertufa How-To Manual"!
It is so well written and the explanations are so thorough. It is worth every penny and then some. Thank you!
Hi Claudia, My wife and I recently began a hypertufa project that we saw in a local newspaper a few months ago. It was fun working together to make a small trough! I started to browse the Internet looking for more hypertufa info, and found your eBook and went ahead and purchased it.
We are pretty enthused about trying to make hollow spheres. Every Spring, our city has a city-wide garage sale. For a few years, we have been selling garden related products, and have many customers who return to us each year. We think we'd like to add some hypertufa items, like the hollow spheres, to what we sell.
We look forward to many tips and ideas from your eBook to make this fun and successful. Thanks for offering the benefit of your experience through the eBook!
Using hypertufa to create from the most utilitarian to the most whimsical garden art objects is a relatively simple process requiring a minimal amount of ingredients and tools. Portland cement, peat moss and perlite can be used, along with an old wire brush and screwdriver to act as embellishing tools.
The basic "how-tos" couldn't be less complicated. Yet the possibilities for design and creative innovation are practically endless. I always tell students "your imagination is your ONLY limitation".
