Remember the Medusa bust I posted about a couple of days ago? Using it as a source of inspiration, we decided to make them ourselves.
What you need:
- Hollow bust (we used a Buddha head)
- Stone drill bit
- Stone cutter
- Potting ground
- A ‘hairy’ plant
- Ear and eye protection (you’ll need it)
First of all we drilled a couple of holes in the bottom of the Buddha. Then we drew a very nip-and-tuck-ish cutting line through its hair. Tom used a stone saw to cut through the stone. I have to tell you, it really felt like preforming brain surgery on a Buddha! We then put potting ground in, and planted a pretty hairy plant. We’re so happy with the result.. it feels so zen!
Honestly, I have the bestest boyfriend ever!!
