The hydrostone is unusual material. Much lighter then stoneware when it dries, but much more fragile.
No chipping stoneware with your fingernail. Both have their cool properties. Hydro-stone hardens in the mold in less then an hour. Take it out of the mold, let it dry and paint it.

anyone wanna suggest a frame for the original ? thinking it should be mahogany so will match in color.
it would look really good in a cabinet door too.

Great job on these Dan…

I think Mahogany will be perfect for the frames.
