My son is doing a project for the local animal shelter, and part of it
involves attaching a cement statue to a brick mailbox. The mailbox has a
sort of planter on one side, and the idea is to put the statue on top of the
bricks of the side extension.
His original thought was to simply attach a rectangular flat cement stepping
stone (like a topper to a brick column) to the brick using mortar, and then
attach the statue to the stepping stone (also using mortar.) But after
talking to some local folks, he is rethinking this. Would it be better to
use some sort of epoxy and actually *glue*
the statue onto the stone? Is
he OK to be thinking about mortaring the stepping stone?
Is there a better way to approach this? I have seen cement figures on top
of brick gate columns, so I know it *can*
be done. Unfortunately, I know
nothing about brick laying or concrete work, so I sure can't help him with
