I'm bullish on acid etching and staining concrete. I think it should happen more often.

Going to start putting this yard back together.

I was hoping to salvage this fountainhead

Because it is such a unicorn but it is completely rotten through in spots

And has insects living inside of it. I'm starting to think of alternatives.

I'm going to go to a decorative concrete specialty shop tomorrow. There's just so many different ways I could go, I'd like to talk with someone that knows wtf is going on.

Got sold on a stamping technique.

Just have to rinse it off tomorrow to see how it'll turn out. The powder is supposed to leave color in the impressed areas creating a kind of marbled look.
(And do the 3rd level)

Had just enough material to put a little 4th level in there...

Remains to be seen how it'll all turn out.
