Fill cracks, seal with appropriate epoxy paint (I like Sherwin- Williams for paint- my painting sub-contractors buy from them).

I was wondering about a possible paint solution after seeing some huge terra cota pots that had a pretty blue glaze on the outside . Will have to research more since this is for a Antique concrete birdbath

If you don't like Lowe's, check out Home Depot or Whatever you have around. There should be someone selling concrete patching material.

Clean the crack well. Use some etching like muriatic acid or even a little less caustic, phosphoric acid, to clean the concrete and remove surface films.

A hairline crack may be sealed with 2 part epoxy, but the concrete sealant should bond well to the crack. Once clean, follow the directions on the sealant. To maintain a relatively smooth surface, use a putty knife.

Good Luck.
