Ok I did a bad thing. I didn't practice first. I did learn a lot though. Learned a lot about the mix. Thank you to Walt tools for answering my questions half way through the project. Also thanks to Nathan for always promptly texting me back when I have questions.
I know a lot of my mistakes and know my next project will improve greatly. I will stain it this weekend.

My biggest problem was starting out with the mix to dry.Once Walt tools straightened me out it suddenly became a lot of fun, not to mention easier and cleaner!

Feel free to tell me whats wrong with it. I know there are more things but right off, everything is rounded. No sharp corners. I also know there is a big goofy circus rock on top.

I hope somebody looks at this and replies.

Thanks

Stained it. The fire place is for me. I didn't do my first for a client.

I haven't been at this very long myself. I have watched Nathan's videos over and over trying to pick up on the things that make the difference. I have a practice board up in my garage to play with trying different textures and methods. I felt very confident going into my first project (at my own house) knowing how practice went. There are a lot of tips in the videos that are almost like rules to carve by.

Good luck!

Hey Morris, when working your corners, make sure to use two trowels. I hold one horizontal and the other vertical and follow that corner all the way up. This will give you a sharp corner. Practice makes perfect!!
