Grand Effects concrete bowls incorporate a concrete-fiberglass mix, resulting in a lighter but structurally stronger bowl. Our decorative pieces are beautifully finished with a hand applied process that includes multiple stains and washes and includes a final wax seal. The wax seal provides a deep lustrous finish and protection against fading and discoloration from the outdoor environment. The wax seal requires a healthy dose of direct sunlight to finish the curing process. We could use paints and quick drying stains to speed up cure times, but this would sacrifice the quality and beauty of our finished products.
