Beautiful! Love the footbridge. I make these too, mostly for gifts. I don't set the stones or gravel, just water carefully. Yes they can get a little messed up every now and then, but it doesn't take much to keep them looking cute.
I wouldn't use anything. Just tamp them down a little into the soil. You don't want to hurt the plants. It does look lovely and so cute
I do not know but that certainly is a beautiful planter.
Good question, since you are transporting it, I would consider placing it snugly in a Styrofoam box &/or bubble wrap around the base to avoid any jiggling. I agree, gently tap it down.
Ok .....I love my super 3M 77 spray adhesive. It is one of the best and I use it for all sorts of projects including re-upholstery. So, when I need the glue to get into tiny areas, I spray the glue on a paper plate and wait a little for it to get slightly tacky(30-1min). It has a nice long working time till it gets hard so it is great for projects. I take a long toothpick.....or wooden skewer snapped in half so you can have pin point control. Work it into the glue and apply it where I need it. Just an idea but I seriously do this all the time. I have not seen that in a can so this is my method.
In this case, you won't be taking each rock and doing that but another idea would be to get a disposable foam brush. Spray on a paper plate and wipe the rock surface with the glue where you want it. Good luck!
I would use white Gorilla Glue. It's 100% waterproof and safe for indoor & outdoor use. It will bond stones together.
any adhesive or glue you use could damage or kill the plants so I would not use anything -just pack the stones and gems down tight
It's really beautiful! As a couple of others said, I wouldn't do anything to keep the stones in place. Sometimes you'll buy plants with rocks that have been glued in place, and I find it's very difficult to water them correctly, since you can't gauge how moist the soil is. I almost always end up killing them. It's also hard to get them out to replant them.
Hi ! This looks so pretty !!!! I wouldn't use anything to keep it in place , like a blue or adhesive , it would not be good for the health of your plants .
this is a beautiful arrangement by the way
Hi Jana, stunning miniature You can make a mold using aluminium foil (tin foil) in the shape you want and pour a thin layer of resin inside and then embed the stones. It will work perfectly especially for your river bed.
Here is a top coat i use for my shells https://amzn.to/2TE9DaC
Hi Jana, here's a great article on the fairy gardens, hope it helps you
In my opinion you will not need to seal that adorable little garden. When you water it, just do it very gently with a spray bottle.
Why would you want to seal this planter? It looks fabulous just the way it is. If you use anything I would get a spray Sprar Varnish as it is good for boats and will protect the rocks as best it can.
I would use resin.
I'm not sure, but this is super cute!
