Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
Another form of garden statues youll find are the very popular cherub(s) statues and little boy/girl statues. These garden statues are popular because they are so cute and welcoming. You can add them anywhere in your garden and they are sure to look inviting. Some other fun forms of garden statues can be Disney characters solar light statues and figurines frogs and other kinds of wild life statues. Some garden statues come in the form of welcome signs or yard markers (for example by the mailbox the corners of the driveway etc.).
You will need a good sealer to make the board water proof go to your local paint or hardware store and get their opinion on the best product for your area. When you apply the sealer play close attention to the edges make sure they are completely sealed. I always use two to three coats. Now the fun begins start painting. You can use any water based paint in any color choice you want. I usually put a couple coats of paint especially the base color.
When using shaped objects (such as pebbles) where you dont want them buried in the concrete but would like an even surface after placing them on top of the stone cover with a piece of wood larger than the stone and press evenly. It may take a few tries to figure out the right pressure but the professional look will add to its attractiveness. Besides pathways your garden stepping stones can be used as points for a sundial to ring a tree as wall or raised bed decorations even tabletops or to line small pools and fountains.
