Revisit Fairy Woodland house construction

This discussed much on Accoutrement for several years.
I found found a resin used for resurfacing old concrete with decorative gravel. Sold only to contractors, but maybe will remind somebody here who knows other suppliers we could use?
It's a Sherwin Williams company www.generalpolymers.com
Would love to try the sandbed/pour technique.

In Florida they do that with tiny stones and it is called Chatahoochee.
Perhaps if you google that or ask for chatahoochee resin that will get you closer.

Thanks, GP! I Googled and found a company that sells 'repair kits' of resin/cure for $8.95, plus you can buy their small stone 'filler' in different colors for just $3-4! Gives you about 3 sq. ft. of coverage.

Thats amazing. I wondered what that stuff was! The vocational school has some floors made of that and its really cool, but you don't see it much up here. I bookmarked the site cuz its such a neat item that I might need someday. Then I noticed that they seem to carry my dh's favorite knee pads that I haven't been able to find anywhere.

I've also been trying to figure out what he used. I think the Chat. resin looks like it will work. Keep us updated. I'm so excited now.

Well, I got sidetracked with totems and glass birdbaths, and haven't got to the Chatahoochee. It's sitting on my DR table, I think, under some other stuff. Was waiting for warm weather so could work outside. Now we're coming out of very rainy spell. Maybe it's time for Hoochee Houses for Fairies? Will post pix.

My intentions were pure when I posted about the Chatanooga resin last year. However, my husband's health was steadily declining and he died this February. And I still haven't tried a fairy house. Sigh. I DO have a box of sand saved under my kitchen table with a plastic pan cover to keep the cats out. Maybe I'll get back to the project before snow flies. Maybe not. I WILL try. Hope somebody else has tried it meanwhile!
