Decorating a square container
Any container could be decorated this way.
Grout is spread liberally over each surface, and sculpted into the desired texture using a wooden spatula.
Shells, collected at the beach and painted over with brown metallic paint to achieve a natural finish, are stuck into the grout as decorative accessories.
Once dried, a black crayon is run over the naturally occurring grooves in the grout, both on the inside and outside of the container.
