Resin Garden Statues of Children

by Gardenbella

If you are a gardener you probably love adding different elements to your yard and a garden statue, particularly of children makes a nice addition.

I love my garden but I particularly like my garden statues and one of my favorites is statues of children. I only have one but she takes pride of place in my garden, surrounded by flowers that bloom at different times of the year, not only is she a focal point but makes my garden fun.

Statues of children in the garden can make it a fun and interesting place to spend some time. Often whimsical, these little pieces of art are made to enchant.

Using these statues as a focal point in the garden is a great idea. Planting some flowers or shrubs around the area can change the mood and with the season it can change again.

If you want to enjoy your statues of children more often, place it in a place that can be seen from the inside of the house. Or you can place it at the end of a path to make it a more interesting and inviting place.

As well, placing garden furniture nearby gives the visitor an opportunity to linger and enjoy the statue even more and for a longer period of time.

Nothing makes a garden more enjoyable than adding an art piece in the form of a statue. You might want to start out with a smaller piece or add several depending on the site of your yard.

Arrange them under a tree or in the middle of a patch of flowers for an interesting element to the garden.

If you have a small pond, you can arrange your garden statues around them. I particularly like the little fisher boy.  Isn't he cute?

There are many types of garden statues including ones made of stone, cast on concrete or resin. You will want to pay attention to the kind of weather you have in the winter since frost can damage or destroy a statue.

As they age they tend to get a nice patina on them, making them look even lovelier. However if you find that is not the look you want, then you might want to consider the following when you first get a statue.

You will want to make sure it is clean so wash it and then add a coat of Thompson’s Water Seal. It won’t take too long to do this little chore and in the long run your statues and other garden elements will last longer.

It is fairly simple to do and doesn’t take very long either. Once you have rinsed off the statue and let them dry completely, take a paint brush and apply a thin coast of the water seal. Let them dry and then put them away over the winter months or put them in the garden.

This is a great way to keep your statuary looking good for a long time and makes it easier than having to buy new ones.
