I love Hebel (Y) (Y)

Nothing in this world is safe from possums, it would seem. :lol: Good to hear that it's otherwise held up well. Has it withstood much wet weather though? That's the thing I'm worried about...going to the trouble to sculpt something cool only to have it fall apart if it gets heavily rained on.

I'd much rather regret something I have done, than haven't done.

Ophelia, it has sat in the rain and under the sprinkler - it has been outside for about 2 years now without any ill effects. A completely natural piece of hebel ( a turtle my partner told me - mmmmmmmm its all in the interpretation they tell me :D :D :D ) just went a little green but again didn't dissolve. It is after all just aerated concrete :) :)
