I wanted to get thet ball rolling on this, because I just feel so greatful to have this source to learn, grow, and get motivated and inspired to work in this wonderful craft. For a little over two years this site has been a daily pilgrimage for me, and along the way, many of you have made your mark on my mind, and inspired many projects to come. I wanted to thank everyone as a group, but also try and give specific thanks to many as well, at the risk of forgetting some along the way. My…Continue

Too bad one of the artisans here couldn't have gotten this job. It could have been so much more. Oh well, it's still pretty cool, and may inspire something in those of you who check it out. It's a home in Aspen, CO called the Magic Mushroom House, and can be seen here:…Continue

I thought I'd post a PPS of some photos of the Naica Crystal Cave in Chihuahua Mexico for your enjoyment and reference. Replicating this environment will require a different vertical formula altogether. All rock-heads should find this very interesting. Enjoy!

About a year ago I found a picture of a door, and since I'm a faux finisher, I decided to go for it.
So, I had in front of me six panel metal exterior door, that I supposed to "create" an antique wood door with old hinges
Hardware was very hard to find........so why not to try with concrete... crazy, uh?...Well...check the pictures...

I have always used my own color system. I did use some acid stain (Brickform Turquoise) this time just to get the depth of color. I haven't come up with a green similar to the acid color yet. I was going to market my colrs but when the economy went south I put it on hold. Maybe when things pick up again.
Thanks again for the thoughts on my work. I'll let you know about any product releases I will have in the future.
Talk to you soon
at DCI. This was engraved and stained over a micro topping.The micro
topping was Sgraffino by Color Maker and the stains were DCI solvent
based dyes.Many thanks to Bob Harris for his guidance and input on this project.I will be posting more photos of this and other projects soon.
Thanks again for your comments
I forgot to ask. What is the "wax dog" ? Is it the plaster wax technique used in venetian plaster? I really like it. Do you do your own stencils? Or is this drawn on? I do lots of skimcoats from a mix we have designed over the past four years. We do lots of art work on the floors. I tried to look at your website, is it working?
One other thing I really like your taste in music. I have lots of blues and the collection is growing. I know its corny but I even have the Black Snake Moan sound track. Good music is good no matter what time or place it comes from.
Thanks and Have a great day David
