Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
The last step is again sealing the entire piece of artwork with an outdoor water repellent product. You can use a high gloss or matt finish your choice. Apply your artwork to the wall or fence with the appropriate screws or nails. If you dont want the screw heads to show put the piece up first and then paint it in place. Another option I love for outside use is painting concrete stepping stones. They come in all shapes and sizes in your local hardware store garden area. This is a great time of year to do this project because it will be ready for the spring.
These stones can be used anywhere that could use a little color. Pick out the size and shape stone you like and one that fits your area the best. Remember you can put these little jewels in your garden areas as well. I suggest you use the concrete colored stones it is easier to cover with the paint. The first step is to use an exterior primer to seal the stone. Very important note seal only the top of the stone do not seal the entire stone. It needs a place for the moisture to come out. If you seal the bottom it will crack.
The possibilities are endless so have fun choosing your garden statues and finding the best place for them in your lawn and garden. Stepping stones are another great way to add a personal touch to your backyard. You can use them functionally as actual paths to walk on or you can use them to purely decorate an area that may be difficult to do anything else with. Garden stones are great because they are so easy to decorate with; you just place them where you want them and thats it youre done. You can put stepping stones right in the grass to make a path or in an already landscaped area of rock or wood chips. Either way stepping stones are surely easy to deal with.
