Concrete statues in gardens tend to be tricky. But, they are among the most unique additions for any garden and lawn that makes it worthy to try repairing them. Aside from some patience and time, other things you need include the following:
- Portland cement
- Scrub brush
- Palette knife
- Hot water
- Spray bottle
- 1 gallon container for mixing the cement
- Plastic wrap
Prepare Your Concrete Statue
Combine hot water and small amount of bleach. Remove any grime or dirt using the scrub brush. The bleach can kill off any present algae or moss. Allow the statue to dry off completely before you proceed to the next steps. Be patient because it may take a few days.
Mix the Cement
Mix the right amount of water and Portland cement as stated in the packaging. Screen filter it to remove lumps and enhance consistency. The cement’s consistency must be that of grout.
Repair the Statue
Use water to dampen any blemishes or cracks and ensure that you remove loose bits of debris or concrete. Apply the paint or cement mixture using the palette knife and smooth it with your wet finger. Allow it to dry for 2 hours and moisten the spot with water mist from the spray bottle. Use the plastic wrap to cover the statue. Remove the wrap and mist it again once daily for 5 days. Cover the area with a plastic wrap for the whole duration. You can go for a thicker mix if you want to repair dings and chips.
If you feel a bit ambitious, you can combine flat latex house paint with cement then re-surface the whole statue to achieve a consistent and excellent finish. Take note that patience is always the key if you want to repair your delicate concrete statues.
