making garden statues

woodswalker88(6)June 25, 2012

Hi! I have been trying to find some information about how to make garden sculpture...plaques, tiles & statues. Either with clay, concrete or whatever. I have made tiny statues with that ez-bake clay you buy at the art store, but I think for outdoors I would need someting more durable. I'd probably need some kind of resin or shellac to protect it. I need technical info on materials & techniques, but when I do a search, all I find is 'statues for sale." And I don't like most of them, which is why I'd like to make my own.

Does anyone know of a good link?
