Make Concrete Leaves | Casting | Molding | Painting | Full Series.
Part One – Make A Concrete Leaf (00.10).
Making a concrete leaf cast from a small gunnera leaf. Using concrete mixed with two parts sand to one part cement, along with nylon fibres or polyfibres, concrete bonder and washing up liquid/dish-soap.
Part Two – Latex Mold A Concrete Leaf (13.14).
Make a latex mold from an originally casted concrete leaf to make reproductions of original model, pattern, prototype, etc.
This video show the latex molding process with building up multi-layers of latex to build a durable mold which will be used for making further concrete casts of concrete leaves.
Part Three – Concrete Mother Mold For Latex Leaf Mold (20.43).
This video shows how to make a basic concrete mother mold from concrete. The mother mold is simple to make and using inexpensive materials, which consist of cement, sand, nylon fibres, concrete bonder and washing up liquid – basic concrete mix for this particular project.
Part Four – Make A Concrete Leaf With A Latex Mold (29.34).
How to make a concrete leaf with a latex mold. Using a latex mold to create a concrete leaf from an original concrete leaf. This saves time with finding suitable leaves, plus enabling duplicate and multiple copies of original concrete leaves.
Materials used are sand, cement, polyfibres or nylon fibres, bonding fluid, washing-up liquid and of course the latex mold, taken from the original leaf molding.
Part Five – Demolding Concrete Leaf From Latex Leaf Mold (36.40).
Demolding concrete leaf from latex mold. Following on from the video ‘How to make a concrete leaf with a latex mold’, here is the demolding process shown in this video.
Part Six – Concrete Leaf Painting | Autumn/Fall Red Style (39.19).
Paint a concrete leaf in an Autumn/Fall style using acrylic paints. First undercoat the leaf with a base coat. Undercoat video here: https://youtu.be/n7m_V6CLEe8
Using a palette of red, orange and yellow, dry brushed layers of paint are applied to create an Autumnal or Fall effect. Edges finished with a dark brown colour, which is the same as the base coat.
Part Seven – Make A Miniature Concrete Leaf (48.05).
Make A Miniature Concrete Leaf. In this video a miniature concrete leaf is made using a latex mold taken from a concrete cast from a natural gunnera leaf.
The same process is followed as making a concrete leaf which is featured in a video on the Dramamask Evolution YouTube channel. There is also a video of how to make a latex leaf mold also. Related videos are in this description, plus links to the videos in the video.
Using concrete with a mixture of 2 parts sand to one part cement, concrete bonder, washing up liquid/dish soap and water is all which is needed to make the actual concrete leaf cast.
The miniature concrete leaves are fun to make, as well as regular sized leaves and large leaves. Making the latex mold, will of course give you the capacity to make multiple leaves from one mold, instead of using original natural leaves just the once. It is also a bonus to preserve your favourite leaf casts in latex to reproduce over and over again! 🙂
Part Eight (Final) – Concrete Leaf Casting | Speed Time Lapse (54.46).
Casting up a large gunnera leaf with concrete in speed time-lapse video.
