I just ran across you guys and am very impressed by the quality of the work I'm seeing.  Very thorough website with lot's of impressive content.  I'm looking forward to finding out more.  And if you ever have any Southern California training's I'd be interested in possibly participating.  Especially in the category of faux rock construction.

Class Coming Up in August!

NEW STONE FACING AND FOAM CORE CONSTRUCTION CLASS BY VERTICAL ARTISANS

Jason Micelli and Deane J. Pantaleo at J & D Supply will be hosting a Foam Core Construction event where we will be fabricating a very unique stone entrance way using the very best techniques in stone facing.   This entranceway will also have organic rock work and a massive multi leveled sales desk and customer reception desk installed.   

The course will be Wednesday – Friday the first or second week of August.   Saturday will be a bonus.

Each student will receive a years subscription to The Art of Stone Facing and Foam Core Construction courses offered on Vertical Artisans.

The cost of the class is $1500 and if you would like to build your own Ice Rock, Fire Pit, or some other small idea the price is $1900.  This simply covers materials and you can not leave your master piece, you must take it with you 😊  You must also tell us immediately so we can have your materials ready.

Class Address:

9910 West 190th Street Mokena IL suite B

Bonding Agent/Adhesive Question When Applying Scratch Coat

I have a poured concrete retaining wall that I want to put a scratch coat on. I’m going to use Sakrete Type S mortar for the scratch. What would be a good bonding agent to first put on the wall before applying scratch coat? After the scratch coat I’m going to apply Kirtbag. Any advice is appreciated.Thanks,BillSee More
