December Bird 2015

December Bird 2015

All birds with a date stamp of December 2015 should be suitable for outdoor hanging.

Oh yeah? I hear you say…

I’ve made a few minor changes to make this so:

  • The ceramic has been fired at a higher temperature so it absorbs less water. Having done a soak test and the results are positive and I’ve got a bird hanging outside (as shown) since early June 2016
  • The backing block has been replaced with exterior ply and sealed it with exterior varnish
  • I’m working on a more secure way of holding the tile to the wall as I have had requests by people to place the tiles at the front of a property…this is still a work in progress

    Update – I have been regularly checking on this little fella and he seems to be holding up pretty well. He has now had temperature’s in the minus figures as well as frost. Feeling fairly confident he’s outdoor hardy.

    Update 2017 – Really pleased to say this chap has been through freezing cold nights and super hot days and is still holding it together.
