Christy- yup, the male adapter I had was the wrong size-:! I also had gotten the wrong elbow…I got a 90 degree instead of a 45 degree; so, now I should be all ready to make my teapot!!!
Thanks for your help!!! Ha ha…it will have been a long journey to this little teapot feature, but hopefully well worth it. And I love the crystal drop. I love the idea of making it an actual fountain. Was wondering if the teapot should be sealed with something to protect it from the elements? If yes, what should I use? Hi Nicole! There should be no need to seal them. Ceramic holds up really well outdoors.
I did bring them in for the winter though, but there was really no need to. I just love this project, and the great way you explain things!!
