I tried posting this earlier. I have an outdoor fountain in which one of the supports needs repairs. It is made of some type of foam type material and covered with a plaster-like material. The plaster is chipping off and causing the foam to disintegrate. Is there something that I can cover the foam with and paint it to match/

Maybe some cement repair that comes in a tube like caulking. Normally it's used to replace the cement between bricks.

RE: Fountain repairs

Thank you for your suggestion regarding the cement repair. You are correct that it goes on and spreads like caulk. After some trial and error and a little patience, I was able to cover the damaged area. It hardened over the area, and I was able to paint it to match the terra cotta pots. Thanks!

RE: Fountain repairs

Glad to help.
