Decorative Concrete Tips: Fixing a Crack With Artistry

decorative concrete crack fixing by using your artistic handi-workI was playing around with some ways to fix cracks in my stamped sidewalk at home. Any kind of patch repair will stick out like a red flag on the textured concrete. I liked the idea of using the crack so it would fit into the look of my sidewalk and still prevent water from undermining the sidewalk.

decorative concrete crack fixing with artI took a diamond blade and scored the crack. Next I took a Dremel tool with a diamond bit and carved the outline of the leaves and stems. The plant I copied is an ivy vine. I was trying to make it look like the plant is growing out of the joint.

I used colored tile grout for the stem. Then I added some color to the leaves and sealed it. I’m really happy the way it turned out. I wanted it to look like the plant is growing across the sidewalk.
