Hypertufa, peat and mortar mix

by Barbie Car Girl

is there a way to preserve driftwood pieces? Mine have deteriorated through the years. Could I dip them in the peat and mortar mixture?

Hi Barbie Car Girl, I'm not 100% clear on what you're asking. If your driftwood is still in pretty good shape, then dipping it into the hypertufa mix may not help with preserving it, in fact, it might make it deteriorate more.

You would have to use a thick coat for it to contribute any kind of protection, which may negate the look of it.

Why not use some of the resin products that completely fill in any of the damage and preserve it locked inside the product? I don't have much more information about it, but that might be an option.

Hope that helps with your question,
Twig Lady
