This is a bird bath I made using rock and tumbled glass. I had this beautiful old porcelain basin that was cracked in several places. It was too pretty to part with, so I decided it would work for this. When I saw the other post today, I thought I would share mine too!
It went together quickly, and I am about to start another one! This one is in my space at the Antique Store where I work part time.

After seeing OnEagleWing's bird bath, I thought I would share mine! I guess great minds think alike again!

Is there a really good sealer out there for waterproofing mosaic? We have so much rust in our water I'd be afraid it would make the grout look grubby after a while.

Very nice piece!! shelly:) Posted: 3:49 pm on July 26th
