Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
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.
Another feature of a lighted stepping stone is the added sense of security. When people go away on vacation they can feel safer knowing the stepping stone will be turned on to signify that someone may be home even when they are not. This will also allow people to have some light when they return home at night. A lighted solar stepping stone has many purposes in addition to looking attractive. The bulbs inside do not need to be changed often and the stones can capture enough energy to last a few nights even if the sun did not come out that day.
Stepping stones come in different sizes and materials. They are often made of concrete natural stone resin and/or polyresin. Some garden stones come versatile with a hook to hang as a plaque. You may choose to do this when choosing decorative stepping stones. For example some decorative stepping stones come with a beautifully painted picture of hummingbirds or butterflies on them. When using these decorative stepping stones for your backyard you may want to consider using them for decorative purposes only or where they will be stepped on very little.
