Can someone help me out? Why did my cement crumble? Is it too hot to pour cement? Do you have to keep wet? Was it too wet in beginning? Was it not thick enough? Martha didn't mention this....On the positive side The concept will work & be beautiful if I can keep it in one piece. It's suppose to be a giant leaf bird bath. Also does anyone know a rule of thumb for mixing smaller quantities of cement? The bag only tells you for the whole bag. I also did this as soon as the sun came up so was still cool outside well in this heat cooler.
