I would love to make a shallow bird bath. Do you add some type of reinforcements? I REALLY want to try this. Hurray!

I have bluebirds that use my store bought one but I have to leave the water shallow or they will not get in.

Yes we did use a reinforcement wire as these are so very large and heavy.

A screen mesh, or chicken wire maybe? How did you shape the big circle?

We used extruded metal plaster lath similar to this

We purchased it at Lowes it was near the portland cement.
I would think that a piece of chicken wire would work also I have used that in my larger hypertufa pots.
All the leaves and the round bird bath were formed over mounded sand, to give them a cupped shape to hold water.

Your leaves are lovely and that pond with the leaf waterfall are making me drool! I have wanted to make some myself, but I want big ones and I don't have a source for large leaves...YET. I'll keep looking for a source. Someone in this area must be growing elephant ears I can beg off of Green Grin!
