My concrete birdbaths all have cracks and leaks. How do I fix them?
By Kay A. from Anna, TX
Use a quick patch epoxy product. You will probably have to repaint to get consistent colors.
Use epoxy filler. You will have to drain the birdbath first. Instructions are here: www.doityourself.com/
I was given a large concrete pig as a lawn ornament and over the years the paint has been chipping off. Can anyone tell me what kind of paint I can use to repair my pig?
There are paints for concrete. Go and speak with someone in the paint dept. at your home improvement store. You might even check a hobby store for paint that might work, although it won't come in any quantity of size, probably only good for "parts" (like eyes).
I have a duck that sits on my front porch that is about 15 years old that was in sad need of some paint so I bought the craft paint from Michael's Craft Store and after I repainted her I sprayed her with a clear acrylic top coat and it's been two years and she still looks beautiful! Hope that helps. :)
