This is the latest form of shelter. It's pretty sweet on the surface. But you can't bury it! At least without adding concrete. It's 4mm thick when done. It's really cool. They have other products that might help as well.

I am not sure how this applies to concrete canvas, but if you want to make a sculpture of water pouring, try this.
Get acrylic resin and hardener at a craft store examples are shown in the link below.
Mix according to directions and pour into a squeeze bottle such as a dish soap container.
Place the vase in the column and drip the resin onto its mouth slowly. You will notice the resin getting warm in the bottle. This is the exothermic reaction that make it hard. The warmer it is, the faster it cures. The faster it cures, the warmer it gets. This reaction will get away from you if it gets too warm too quick. THis can burn you and will harden in the squeeze bottle.
As the resin pours from the vase, direct a heat source (paint stripper, hair dryer or such) on it. THis will cause the resin to flash cure effectiely "freezing" the resin in place per the exothermic description shown above.
Since you have never worked with epoxy resins, i recommend you practice on some other project to avoid wrecking you vase and column. The resin is very difficult to remove after it has cured if you wreck the first try.

I read this several times to see if this was a pornbot... I guess not! Welcome to APN, interesting first post.
I have to be able to bury my shelter.... otherwise it doesn't feel like shelter.
Pricey little shelters, aren't they?
WOW. Looks similar to those concrete domes. They take this HUGE balloon, blow it up, spray insulation on the inside, attach rebar to the foam and concrete on top of that. Except it's a...tent. I'd pass. Save money and buy a shipping container or two.

Totally agree! this is too much for such a shelter! I can marry and have feed 3 children by this amount of money!
There is always ferocrete, you build a supporting structure of wood, steel, bamboo, whatever (as long as it is strong), then cover it with chicken wire, and wire it to the underlying structure, and spread a layer of concrete over it, you can add acrylic hardener admix, etc. They've built ships out of it, talked about supply depots in orbit using it, etc. cheap and strong.
You will notice the resin getting warm in the bottle. This is the exothermic reaction that make it hard. The warmer it is, the faster it cures. The faster it cures, the warmer it gets. This reaction will get away from you if it gets too warm too quick. THis can burn you and will harden in the squeeze bottle???
why bother when you can have ferro concrete for $400 http://www.motherearthnews.com/green-ho ... dzraw.aspx
Thanks for the reminder! I helped build one decades ago and the process is very easy and cheap. Swamp
