Cement birdbaths

More steps to creating cement birdbaths.
Almost finished! Cure for three to four weeks and apply cement stain or paint.
My experiment to create a rustic birdbath. I mounded the dirt and mulch up and applied the cement to the top of the leaf. I did not use plastic to cover the mound first.
After 48 hours I removed the tarp cover and turned it over. This is what it looked like before I hosed the remainder leaf away.
This is what the Elephant Ear looked like when it shrank, I should have wetted the sand more before I added the leaf. This leaf just lifted right out.
