If you use basically the mixture that I provided, then it doesn't get dusty. I would describe it as crumbly. The only time it get's dusty is if you use power tools. Here are some other projects. http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=28917&forum=18&vpost=390633&hilite=alexdog1

Very cool! I REALLY like your tiki torch idea - it looks very nice all lit up!

Crumbly...hmmm...good to know and thank you for the information. Is it like the consistency of carving clay then?

Have you tried adding any color to the cement when you first pour it into the tube?

I am very impressed with your concrete tikis, thank you for sharing them and adding the link to your older post!

It's not really like clay, maybe a dirt & clay mixture. I haven't tried to put color in the mix but it should work okay. Maybe I'll put that on my list of things to try.

Layed out.
