My first & second Bird bath/table
I saw this cheap-o plastic bird bath at the store a few weeks ago and thought that it would make the perfect mould for a bird bath. As you can see it worked fantastic.
I had a few old dishes from the "Blue Willow"? series so I decided to use them and make a mosaic. The one with the round plate has been sanded and cleaned up. The oval plate still needs a bit of clean-up.
I used portand cement one part to three parts sand. I reinforced the stand with metal and chicken wire. It was my first attempt at making anything in concrete so I hope it works out. It is still slowing curing in this damp weather.
This is the plastic bird bath that I used for the mould. I used my rotary tool and just cut along the seems to take apart at the end.
