"It's your name and company on the line, I would pass on this one. Anything rubber or foam is going to break down with people running into it, the sun will go to work on it, fade and crack the surface. Tell them to wrap the kids in bubble wrap."

Hi Mike, Do you know anywhere in town (Las Vegas) that will sell fly ash? Iv'e been to quite a few ready mix plants and some masonry/ concrete suppliers. finally found some at Sierra, but he's kinda doing me a favor, since its such a pain for them to get it out out of their cylo. I wont be doing any work around here since i'm only licensed in California, but i have some personal projects for my house im working on. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for responding Mike!  I'm working on a bar right now for my place and i'm trying to get, or make a good vertical mix (some may say "chicken soup") to use without shipping a bunch of stuff across country.

I did pick up a product at Allied today called Easy Spread that you mix with portland and sand. I just finished playing in it, and it seems to work really well! It was sticky enough and textured well, the best part is it was cheap.

Hope to see you at WOC! Will you have a booth or are you just lookin?
