You do fantasic work!!. This is the area in which we would like to enhance our skill level. I had visted your site on several occasions during my research of different finishes for floors. Your site was very helpful in understanding that there is no limit to learning new techniques. Thank you

Thank you for the complement. Yes this is my first project. I did use boulder formations for the colors. I'm currently working on a second project with a classmate from my hand carving vertical concrete class. Her name is Dawn Bray also a forum member and she will be posting those pictures when it's done, but you can see the progress on my blog page, http://www.vantaggiocreations.blogspot.com
We are doing 2 columns and 3 arches in her basement. It's alot of work but it's looking amazing!

Hi Randy; the metal work is mine. I have done stainglass but it was in jamaica for a church but I do not have photos ,,

Randy, Great photo's. I really like your carved step work, but you are a very well-rounded artisan. Like a Picasso with A.D.D. I never thought I'd see a live human face carver here, either. What's next? I was going to comment on some individual pics, but just don't have the time for now. Thanks for the inspiration. Cheers!

Good to hear from you, and look forward to seing those pics as you find the time. As for some of your questions, I am using a sealer from DuPont that is a modified version of a catalyzed automotive clearcoat. It's hard to obtain, at least reliably, but I am working on a better source that I can pass on to all on this network without any additional markup. The satin finish would blow you away with how natural it looks and feels. I am with you regarding epoxies. I always hated the look, feel, performance and application issues. That doesn't leave much to like. I haven't heard of the one you mentioned, but should probably check it out. The colors I mostly use are Smith Paints. I have a feeling we'll probably share a few pointers back and forth over time, let me know if you want to know how I sell texture. It's not too difficult. By the way, if you haven't done so already, check out bobby Leatherwood's Picassacrete page. Top notch textured tops there as well. Stay in touch!

Just saw your last comment. We must be on here at the same time. I sure wish I could tell you that I had some great master plan and the ideal materials for that pub job. Fact is, the whole thing was done on the fly. The base is Miracote micro over quarry tile. Smith Paints applied random by trowel for the background. The logo and border was hand drawn by my 16 yr old from a business card and a celtic design found by the owner, and he made a paper stencil of the dog/knot to keep the four corners consistent. We used a bunch of metallics, done by adding pearlex powders to the stains. They wanted an old world, hand painted look, and we were able to deliver. It sure was fun. Not as clean as your world map design, which I sure liked. Let's see that one finished up, by the way.

Oh yeah, the website is a sore subject. I made my own site, and it looked good. I didn't know what I was doing, so it loaded a bit slow. A "professional" said he could fix it up, and while he made it load fast, he made it look like crap. I was so mad, I had one of my boys disable it and start work on a new one. Until then........

Yes, of course I remember you. You were so helpful when I did my first Skimstone job there in Olympia. Actually, that was my last job, too. I haven't been advertising whatsoever. Too busy with the kids and my husband's business. I will definitely check out your photos. Sounds like you're keeping very busy, even though the economy hasn't been so great. It helps to have a specialty. I would be interested in going to one of your job sites in the future to check out your formula. That would be great. I joined the forum after you told me about it. Nobody except for David Driggs has ever contacted me, but I don't think I responded because he didn't tell me where he was from. It looks he's someone you know. I've gotten a few pranks from people looking for things other than concrete work, if you know what I mean. :-) So thanks for your note, and maybe I'll see you on a job site sometime.

Hello Randy, Hope you weathered the storms of winter well and are ready for spring. I was enjoying your photos with the family again, and one of the boys really likes your carved planters and would like to try his hand at them. Do you mind sharing any mix/tool/process tips? I also noticed you may be looking for good sealers. If you want, I could give you a lead on a very good one.
