Painting a pond

Lou BTeriLori J


Does anybody know what kind of paint I can use to paint my outdoor fountain. It has three large cement bowls where the water flows in and down. I used a cement paint for sidewalks but that didn't work real well.

    I don't really know, but my first thought would be a cement STAIN that is sold online

    I sprayed mine with krylon hammered copper and then applied two coats of cement sealer. I have had it for three seasons (garage sale find), and it has weathered well. There is some evidence of deterioration in the bowl, but I just resealed it.

    Lowe's carries a paint that is used for this. It can only be tinted in a few colors. I used this to paint the inside bowl of my fountain. I had it tinted blue.
