    Nice one @andre looks good mate. New you'd make a go of it, not used to people taking as many notes as you did . Fair play to you and best of luck with future works

    May I just add that the dwarf wall done by Andre is all free hand . No printing mats used only a texture skin, very good first hand cut job

  13. That is fantastic! I'm going to try and get on the Aug training session. Just unsure of how to go about getting the 1st few jobs so I can start creating a new portfolio of this work.

    I went on a course a few years back and thought a lot of the stuff looked ****.looks fake when sealed.did see a few good patterns though.

    I agree, with an imprinted mat & a gloss sealer it does look fake,
    but a hand carved stone or brick effect with a Matt sealer doesn't look fake :)
    Its like the concrete driveways I think they look sh1t, all the same colour no different colour grout/pointing lines & a gloss sealer it looks w a n k!
    But spend a little time carving back the joints to reveal the grey concrete underneath for the joints & it would look a lot better plus use a Matt sealer & bobs your uncle & Ryan swarts yet aunt :RpS_thumbsup:

    Matt sealers tend to do f all though don't they. That's the problem the less sheen, the less protection. Stencil crete have some nice flooring effects, how long that stays down is another matter

    There a guy down my way who does stone effect.he doesn't use matt's,no sealer and just uses sand & cement not wallcrete gear.he uses dye's.his work looks smart tbh.hes a bricklayer/mason so has the eye for it

    Sounds good bobby, that's all you need really sand, cement, fibres, sbr & coloured pigment in the mixes.

    Don't like to rain on your parade mate but who ever designed that knows nothing about stone! I know it's stone effect but I think they should have taken the time to at least learn a few basics about stone. They have vertical lines running from bottom to top of wall. That's a big big no no in stone work. Best effect should be 2 on 1, 1 on 2 and 2 beside 1 and 2 beside 2. Defo nothing like in your pics!
