I found a local distributor of Tru-Pac close-by here in Ohio. I have heard nothing but good about it and going to use it on my next project.
I had a couple of questions if I can throw them out there..
If anyone can help that would be great:
- I work a lot with foam as the core of my pieces, I think I remember Nathan using it on foam for the world of concrete display. From what I remember there was no need for wire? Is that true? Can I use…Continue

Hello everyone, i discovered a great way to advertise for free. Most local newspapers offer write ups in certain sections for free. If you call them and tell them what you do, they will request some pics, info on what it is you do, and then they tailor it to fit in a certain section of the paper. I was able to get 3 pics and a half page article in the local paper in the business section describing what i did, what is is, and where i am located. It is also online for the people who may not…Continue

I was reading on the v/a forum site, and one of the guys mentioned a company called stonemakers.net so I looked them up and they do stacked mud/concrete walls. There technique is ok . And I am pretty sure the one day walls seminar is over . But I was just wondering what are the admixtures everyone keeps talking about that help the concrete be more workable ?
I`ve manage to carve some decent rocks for deco purposses, but time for acrylic water painting has come and find myself in trouble, lol. I do have a good painting basic background, nonetheless coloring separate rocks that are so close, like the ones showing on main page made by Nathan seems a titanic work. Even though I`m after a few different colors and tones for the column stones, spraying neighboring ones with wrong color to then go over, and over to repaint seems a foreever lasting …Continue
Many times over the last several years I have done classes or training for folks and there has always been things that have been left out that are critical to the over all productivity of the job. These can be small things but they are really important. So this is a check list that may help you stay focused and prepared.

Hello everyone, just want to update you all on some KBag news. KBag Carving Mix is now available in Canada. Now my friends in the north can get it. I have also aquired a shipping company that can ship a pallett for $200 or less. Thats right, anywhere in the United States for under $200. Now shipping isnt the issue for purchasing KBag. Im constantly looking to help everyone save money on mix to help this industry grow. Without a reasonably priced mix that performs how you want it to, you…Continue
There has been an increase recently in the number of people putting “man caves” in their residences. A man cave is a room wholly committed to the male head of the household, a sanctuary for the male to relax and refresh away from stylish sofas and pourris. It's not the worst move for residence values either, as it may add just a little more to the bottom line comes time to sell the house. Article source:…Continue

I wanted everyone to know that the Vertical Artisans International Web Site is underway. This Web site will be another teaching site very much like the first one, however, the VDO's will not have any voice over and the teaching will be primarily text, diagrams and pictures. The VDO's will be illustrations of what is taught.
On the face of the site people will be able to click on the flag from which country they are from and the entire site will be converted to their own…Continue

Just a quick update from KirtBag. I have secured distributorship for the west coast. Now the shipping cost to california and states in the west is almost cut in half. You can get KirtBag for a much more affordable price. Give jeff a call to order some mix. 314 486 9606.
I need to make a sample board, more precisely a worn, weathered one. An actual old piece of wood shall help, but tips and advise are very useful. Thought about making a few texture rollers since I lived far from US, and by the time I order and receive shipment oportunity may be gone, at least to make the sample for a client. Coloring the foix bois is of no concern Any tutorial reference on this, tips of any sort? Your input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
