sealing a rhubarb leaf
I made the leaf and painted it with outdoor patio paints and when dry used a spray concrete sealer. Its only been out in the yard a month or so and I see some of the paint is coming off the concrete. It is being used as a real birdbath. I only sprayed one coat of sealer. The reason is the spray appeared to go on kind of cloudy so I didn't want to use alot and lose the colors I painted on the leaf. The product I used was Rust-Oleum water based concrete sealer. It says ideal for use over rust-oleum stained concrete or bare concrete. Can you seal the concrete leaf first and then paint the patio paints on top of that? Don't know which way to go with this and I have another leaf ready to be painted. Maybe there is a better concrete sealer out there.
