So mine was an epic fail. Too much water, not enough plaster. Also procrastinated doing it until Sunday, the day that El Niño decided to strike. Down side, no plaster cast, just a ruined bucket. Upside the beach looked like the most astonishing mirage of speeding, swirling sand. I do plan to take a second stab at it, but maybe not when there is a blizzard-ing sand storm stabbing at me.
