Ryan had an unusual job request – to turn regular old stepping stones into expensive looking Terracotta tiles. After doing some research, coming up with different color combinations, and making samples Ryan was up for the challenge.
The stones were recently pressure washed so Ryan began with a Terracotta primer as the base coat to give it a foundation for the finished product. Ryan let that dry for 48 hours before coming back to apply the different colored washes to create the Terracotta look. Then he used three different colors to come up with the final look – two similar red-orange colors and a brown antiquing glaze. Ryan came back the next day to finish up with the water-base clear coat.
The transformation from the old stones to the new stone look was amazing. The customer agreed. Another well done job by Artistic Finishes, Inc.
