I'm looking to do some concrete work and I'd like it to look like brick or cobble stones. I was going to get some dye/stain that you mix in wet cement. The problem is that I don't know what to do after that, can I rent the stamps or can I just carve into the concrete, the shapes / lines that I want and when would I do that.
I've seen someones house where the stuco was done like this and it looks real. I was told after you smooth the concrete, you scratch your design, then let it dry, but if the concrete is too wet, it'll just flow back over the lines.
