    I like the stone pattern stamps for turning an otherwise mundane driveway into an art form They are surprisingly inexpensive

    Now then after a little air brush work no one would be able to tell they were not real bricks
    the first time I saw the patterned rollers was back in the 70's in Germany they were used to pattern walls to look like wall paper

    That's the great thing about these molds or applicators is you can use the relatively inexpensive form of shotcrete spray on mortar or stucco then apply the desired design and have an expensive looking wall surface add a little extra time by air brushing colors on while the surface is still wet then later seal with a matte or satin weather & UV protect-ant and have a long lasting wall that you can be as proud of as one costing many 1000's of dollars more.

    Most work concreters do is backbreaking. My dad was a builder but his first trade was "solid plasterer". He would get the plaster or concrete like glass. With concrete he had a tool, not unlike that one, that he made (and lent out) with interlocking hexagons like a bee hive frame for brood or honey.He used red oxide & later yellow as well (which I think are probably banned everywhere nowadays). He told me the design was not for looks but to prevent people slipping over. So why make it like glass?="that is the way a real tradesman does it". these days they use helicopters but still back breaking.Thanks for sharing. more nostalgia!

    Cheers
    Ranald
