for both lawn and garden décor as well
as within the home, concrete/cement statues and
sculptures exist as a way to make less costly
statues. Despite their low cost, concrete and
cement mixtures can easily fill even the most
delicate carvings. Of course, referring to a pieces
as cement statues is not really an accurate description.
Cement is actually just one component that is
used to make concrete. It is the powdered substance
made of burned lime and clay that mixes together
with the sand, gravel, and water. When it dries,
it hardens and becomes concrete. Consequently,
we typically refer to cement statues as concrete
Concrete works very well as a statue material
because it is a hard, compact building material
that still allows for a good level of detail at
a very low cost.
Concrete statues are typically reserved for outdoor
garden statues and fountains.
