He used a piece of metal flashing to create the concrete form. First he marked the metal flashing for the bottom of the form, He made this 5 inches tall. Next, he marked 2 inches above the first line. At this point, you will have two parallel lines.
Then he wrapped the metal flashing around the vase. He closed the flashing by taping the loose end. He used a large vase that’s 24 inches tall by 7 inches. You can find that at your local craft store.
Next, he took two 1 inch rubber seal and followed the line going around the interior, following the line he drew out. He did this twice, which gave him a two-inch path around the interior of the flashing. This part will shrink the interior, which will make the concrete fit right over it.
