Large Flower Pebble Pot

Flower Pebble Pot

Finished project.

Pebbles to choose from ...

*  Choose a range of pebbles (or whatever tesserae you wish to use) 
and roughly shape your pebble flowers so that you can gain a perspective 
as to the spacing of them around the exterior of the pot. 
 I have them placed randomly, with different sizes placed around the pot.  
I used smaller pebbles to create the flowers bordering the top edge of the pot.

*  Make sure that you choose pebbles that naturally slot in with the others. 
 You will develop a good eye with practice and time and may even find that
 just the right little pebble will stand out from the others, as though it is meant to be.

*  Once complete, allow the pot to dry fully.  One to two days is ideal.

*  Take a small amount of glue and mix it with water in a plastic bowl or tub. 
Using a soft, clean paint or craft brush, stir and blend the solution until all the glue is dissolved and a weak, white liquid is achieved.  

*  Gently, yet liberally paint the glue solution into all the crevices between the pebbles, ensuring that every section of the entire pot is saturated.  
Allow to dry for at least a day or two.

*  Spray tile waterproofing spray all over the finished project, 
making sure that you get it into all the tiny gaps between the pebbles.  

Finished project :)

*  All finished and ready to put to good use.
