Japanese concrete water basin making

Japanese concrete water basin making


I used MDF templates and my hot wire cutter to cut the polystyrene disc to make the bowl shape After that I glued the discks together using double sided tape And I used rasps and sandpaper to finish the shaping I used some MDF to make a mold for the plaster I used soap as release agent, but motor oil works better Then I used plaster of paris to make the mold Here I cut some keys in the mold I used some more polystyrene to make the inner mold for the bowl I put a plastic disk in the mold so I can demold easier I paint the mold with solvent based paint I oiled the mold with oil so I can demold the bowl I used a diamond disk on the grinder to smooth the bowl Here I made a mixture of cement water and pigment to finish the bowl Them I sand the bowl

  1. what its the blue paint you use ?

  2. have you tried perlite to mix with the cement , the basin will be lighter in weight

  3. I tried various material mixed with concrete perlite for weight bronce – grinding lamellar , etc

  4. Here in Puerto Rico its difficult to get granite japanese lamps or zenigatas stone I just made a zenigata stone out of concrete still Im not satisfied 100%

  5. WOW! You're a genius!

  6. Hi, what are you using as a mold release? What type of plaster are you using, seems like it takes awhile to set up.

  7. At the end, you use a "coating" of something (looks brown) that you are spreading with your hand. What is the coating?

  8. amazing
    great work , i love what you do , so much patient 🙂

  9. Thank you, respect, I thought it was easy

  10. What did you use for creating the mold form? Something like gypseous alabaster or clay?

  11. can i buy from you pls?

  12. This one is so beyond my league but it's been such a pleasure watching you work on it. and with such ease!

  13. Paul beautiful work.

  14. Can you reuse the mold? It took so much effort to make, I hope so! Very nice, so symmetrical and smooth. Kudos.

  15. Huge respect for your craftsmenship. Beautiful

  16. Wow, Great work!! What was the black paint you coated the plaster with, any special kind ?

  17. beleza pura arte + arte

  18. Looks great and nice effort. If you're just making one or two, I can't help but think it would just be easier to freehand the shape on top of a ball or other object, which would be made easier and more uniform by doing it on a turntable.

  19. Impressive! Wish I had your patience.

  20. Please Paul, What is the white material that you are using to make the form? Polystyrene??

  21. maravilhosoooooooo

  22. You put lot of effort in you rwork and the final resut is so worth it, respect man

  23. You can probably mix UHPC (ultra high performance concrete) to a clay consistency and form it like clay pottery (leave out the large aggregate like pebbles).

  33. I respect your talent and hard work. To learn this it would take ages for me.

  34. nice, now I want oreos tho…

  35. Of all the beautiful concrete pieces you have sculpted, this seems to be the easiest. Everything you have made has been beautiful beyond words. Thank you for sharing your construction methods. I was wondering though you didn’t use any wire or other thing to increase your basins strength. Was it because of the concrete you used, or something else?

  36. If you please, what is the name of the wire tool you use to cut the mold?

  37. Awesome! What is the pink stuff you were brushing on the form right before you started applying the plaster?

  38. Bello 😍👏👏

  39. sencillamente hermoso, por favor ¿que aplicas al molde para que no se pegue el concreto?

  48. The styrofoam ball you were working on had me thinking about the Death Star from Star Wars! Great job on the water basin. Have you made any other types of basins or tsukubai?

  49. Wonderful… great job 👌👌👍

  50. Muibooooooooooooonita

  51. Music at 2:45 is Camille Saint-Saëns – Danse Macabre.

  56. Precioso trabajo felicidades!!!🇲🇽

  57. Waoo!! Amazing!!

  58. Yes, very interesting. I would encourage you to make more videos. More written comments as you proceed would make this actually achievable by a novice like me. Or just do the music and put a material list and sources in the Info section. thanks.

  60. What a beautiful pot! I'm guessing you make a bunch of these to sell?

  68. Wow very nice but a lot off work . Amazing talent.. thank you for sharing… Your very talented…all the best…
