Good morning Mark,

I'm glad to see you are enjoying the sprayer.

One of your other pictures really caught my attention.



This is one direction that I really like to see beyond rocks. You have blended art, architecture and 3 dimensional work together. Please share more of these as you have pictures.


All my best,

Hey Nolan, gotta say I'm loving the mortar sprayer so far and it appears Herb-Crete seems like a pretty good candidate for the thousands of square feet we have left on this project.

That picture you linked was actually the very first carving and stamping I ever attempted down deep in the end of the cellar, I was playing around with some Butterfield Cantera their warehouseman had given me some samples of their product and a sample color pack assortment.

Heres a little video I through together for friends ( family) back in the midwest that had came out to help me get the block started and do some fishing, I added some pictures of us playing around with candle / lantern lighting around the 2:50 mark.

Being an Apple Beta tester has it's drawbacks and I seem to have lost a large chunk of my pictures due to iPhoto being locked down after my last seed and I would have to dig really hard to find the pics on my external hard rive but I'll see what I can dig up

heres that silly little video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5umvrNMOrE&index=1&list=UU...

Those are about the only ones I took, considering it was the first attempt at this vertical concrete, I thought it was fairly bad work and its getting demoed out for the next phase anyway so picture taking wasn't a big priority. I was more or less playing around and experimenting with Cantera, Tru-Pac and Kirtbag at this point
