Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
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.
After the rain it will be dangerous walking on the grass as it becomes wet and slippery. The stones are helpful as we can step on them to avoid walking on the grass. They also ensure our kids safety when they are playing on our garden as they will not fall because of the wet ground. Their feet will keep clean when they enter the home and step on the floor. Do you ever imagine having moveable stones? If so why do not you consider rubber stepping stones? This kind of stepping pads is extremely lightweight so you can move it to any parts of garden you desire.
After you have sealed the stone and it has dried apply any color or design you like. It is best to use outdoor paint but I have used indoor with no problems. The last and final step is to use a clear coat sealer it often comes in a spray can or you can paint it on. Viola you are done and you now have a beautiful stepping stone for less than $10.00.
