Hypertufa How To

Hypertufa Recipe

February 12th, 2008 by Seb Brown

There are quite a number of varying Hypertufa recipes you can make. The particular Hypertufa recipe you use will depend on what result you are trying to achieve. A basic Hypertufa recipe will generally contain varying amounts of peat, Portland cement, perlite or vermiculite, sand and water. The following is a good basic Hypertufa recipe:

  • 1 part pre-mixed Portland cement/sand mix
  • 1 part peat
  • 1 part perlite or vermiculite
  • water (amount will vary depending on how dry the peat is)

You can vary the Hypertufa recipe depending on how heavy/strong you want your creation to be or if you want to carve it. You can also add cement colorants to the mix to give a more realistic rock color.

To get more comprehensive information on different Hypertufa recipes for different applications I recommend The Hypertufa How To Manual by Claudia Brownlie.
