We absolutely love this project. This fireplace was worn and had a hearth made out of bricks. We are able to go directly over the existing brick fireplace and create a different texture and color to seperate the fireplace from the hearth. The one day transformation was created by applying vertical cement and custom carving it using direction from the customer. The process allows for the copying of a specific photo or look that is found elsewhere and in a different medium. Carvable cement is very forgivng and does not set for eight hours. This allows for some very creative artistry.
