ideas for spraying rock sculpture

Posted by camj (My Page) on

I'm making a rock sculpture. You know how nice rocks look when they are wet. I'd like to keep that look when they're dry. One sculpture I used a poly spray for outdoors. Over time it kind of looked funky. Maybe like some spray stayed on and some came off. Anyone know a clear outdoor spray that would work?

There are different high gloss tile & concrete sealers available which will probably give you the look you're wanting although (from what I understand) you will have to reapply it every few years.

I was given a tip years ago to use Thompson's Water Sealer on stone things, as it brings up the color really good.
But it also needs to be reapplied every few years, depending on weather. Our Phoenix sun can be pretty hard on things during the summer, I try to keep as much GJ in shade as possible.

hugs, Karen
