Piece of a Ytong block, suitable for making a pedestalYtong blocks are very lightweight and inexpensive. You can cut or carve them into shape. Because the blocks are very light, they are not always suitable for heavier sculptures. When using Ytong blocks, ensure that you have a wide base to make your pedestal sturdy. Ytong blocks can be painted with acrylic paint, but the holes will remain visible. If you want to avoid this, you can fill them with putty before painting.

The dust produced when working with Ytong blocks is not healthy. Therefore, make sure to wear a face mask while cutting and carving.

Make sure the bottom is truly flat to prevent your sculpture from tipping over.
