What is Amazing Fa-brick?
Amazing Fa-Brick is a water based fabric hardener with no urea formaldehyde or Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC Free.) It has a Type II water resistance rating. This means you can get it wet, but if you put your sculpture in the rain, it will not keep its shape over time. If you want your outdoor sculpture to be protected against water damage, you will need to seal it. We've found two products which work well for this. First is Krylon Lacquer in clear gloss, part number 7032. Second is Rust-Oleum Lacquer in clear, part number 1906830. Both products come in a spray can and can be found in most hardware and paint stores. When applied according to manufacturer's directions, they will not change the color but will make your sculpture waterproof. Your outdoor sculpture should be thoroughly dry (could take up to 3 days, depending on humidity and temperature) and rock hard before applying the lacquer spray.
