Easy OLDE WORLDE PAINT WASH Effect For Concrete Ornaments

Now the days are getting shorter and colder, we can get on with painting some of our concrete casts, pieces and ornaments which we made earlier in the year.

Starting off on our first paint job of winter 2020, we decided to go with a basic black wash over concrete to create a weather and time worn olde worlde paint wash effect!

Prior to applyng the wash, we applied concrete dusproofer/hardener which is featured in the previous video on the channel. We don’t always use the dustproofer, so results may differ if applied directly to bare or raw concrete.


In this video we try out a product by Bond It called Dustproofer & Hardener for concrete surfaces. The product is designed for concrete floors, but we wanted to try it out on concrete ornaments, pieces and statuary to see if there are some beneficial results.

FILLING BUG HOLES In Concrete Ornaments & Pieces

Filling bug holes in concrete ornaments, statuary and pieces. In this video we mix cement at a ratio of 2 parts sand to 1 part cement, add a small amount of PVA glue/bonder and a small amount of washing up liquid/dish-soap to act as a plasticizer/plasticiser (plus water) to fill the bug holes which were present in the concrete pieces as a result of trapped air not being succesfully released and/or tapped/vibrated out during the pouring process.
