I'd like to come up there and help you with just one for free.....I used 3 different acid stain colors, Dark Walnut, Black, Weathered Bronze. I mixed some together to get different variations.
I don't use any stamps for my vertical concrete work. I used trowels to carve out the rocks. You can then use plastic bags to round off the rocks and give them better textures.
Yeah well sounds interesting....we already do a lot with concrete ie acid staining, sealing, finishing, stamping etc but still I'm sure I would learn a lot.....I can never turn down free help There is a lot to learn.
How to use acid stains
What sealers to use
what tools to use
what type of mix you need to order and how to order it
how to stack the concrete without forms. Sometimes 4-5' high!
how to install drainage (if you need it)
how to add textures
process for carving the concrete
Also things like;
What if this happends?
What do I do now?
Crap, these colors are not what the bottle says, what do I do?
Concrete is to hard to carve by hand, how do I finish the wall without loosing it?
I am thinking of holding seminars eventually but thats a ways away so free help for now is always good :clap:
This is something that you would want to have experience on AT LEAST 2 walls. 1 wall you will get the idea but two walls you might start to feel comfortable. This year was slow but next year I hope to be busy as heck so maybe I can line up some jobs close together
