Garden monsters?

These were harder to make than the other cement sculptures because the partly set cement was all crumbly which made me have to keep changing my design to make up for ears and eyebrows and eyeballs that crumbled off as I tried to shape them.

As of last night, I think I finally figured out WHY the cement was acting differently…. I forgot to close my bag of portland cement all the way, so I *think* that the integrity of the cement was compromised by all the water the portland cement had absorbed from the air… especially considering the large amounts of rain we’ve had in the last few weeks… now i don’t know what to do with my half empty, but slightly damp bag of portland cememnt… any ideas?
