concrete birdbath leaf casting HELP
hi, i have some wonderful instructions for making a rhubarb leaf bird bath (instructions i got from this site)
however, i have been hearing things about concrete and i am wondering about them, since they were not addressed in my instructions.
the most important is about the concrete leaching lime into the birdbath. do i have to soak it in water, or will using the water sealer product work?
how long do i wait before sealing my leaf, the instructions say one week, is that long enough, then once it is dry i can use it right away? is this right?
also, there is no reinforcement in these instructions (i think they came from the better homes and gardens ) will my bath be alright with nothing reinforcing it?
thanks, i am anxiously awaiting your replies!
