Here’s a concrete cast fresh out of the mold for a client in Nashville that is going on his building.
I need to drill a hole in the bottom for a stainless steel rod, and after it cures a few days wrapped in plastic he will get an acid stain.
The cast weighs 150# so this one has to ship by truck!
The cast was acid stained and then a high quality oil based concrete sealer applied quite heavily as this will be installed in a very exposed location, so it’s a good idea to start it off with the maximum protection. The sealer does darken the color considerably but it will lighten up over time. The sealer and stain gave this a good antique look which will make it look as though it has been up on the building since it was built.
