Hey Dion, how's the work up in Idaho? I used to live out by "Birds of Prey" off Cole rd. in Boise. Left about 10 yrs. ago after bringing Stamped Concrete to the area. The area wasn't quite ready for stamped and stained concrete then, so I left after 6 yrs. of not getting enough high end stuff to survive. I hope the market is better now for you.Why don't you post some pics, luv to see your work. Hank Arend

The work in Idaho has been real crappy for a while. I have decided to start this new business and get back to what I believe I am supposed to do, and that is be an artist. I love the construction industry and I have never been so excited about anything I have ever done in my career! I am looking very forward to this new venture!
I will be posting pics soon. I have been very busy getting everything in order lately, been working on a couple carvings. I cant wait till I get a little more efficient at carving. I think I am spending to much time on each stone??????
Talk to you soon

Thanks for the comments.I have not really thought about selling the castings at this time.I am just working and experimenting with different materials to see what works. I made the mold with some liquid latex and brushed it on the original piece in numerous layers.I think it was about 23 to 25 layers.It is a time consuming process but its fun to play around with.I was just trying to come up with something unique and creative.

I checked out your photos of the fireplace you did.It looks great!You seem to be catching on really fast!Best of luck to you!

No problem on the advice. Give me a call at 913-999-6461. I'll be playing with stains all day tomorrow, so I should be pretty available.
