I saw an article in a magazine on How to Make Cement leaves. That is all it took, so off I went. I chose my first leaf, a 3 foot Elephant ear.
I chose my leaf. Mixed up the Quick Crete, made my sand mound, placed the leaf with the back showing & poured the cement mixture over the leaf, added chicken wire to re-inforce it & added more cement. Now I had to be patient for 2 days, and this was my result.
My first Bird bath leaf. This would NOT be my last try at this. I went wild.
