Step 1: Creating the wall with brick looking concrete:
1. WallSpray bag mix was used to create the base of the wall along with the brick. To create the base color (1) Desert Sand Color Pack was added to each bag of WallSpray.
2. The scratch coat was applied by a gravity-feed hopper gun and troweled tight and smooth.
Next, WallSpray has hand applied to a thickness of about ½ inch. Once applied in desired areas, it was hand carved into the faux brick shape.
3. To overcome the seams between the walls, a thin overlay was troweled into it (we used Winter SureSpray, but any thin overlay could work).

Step 2: Creating the Concrete Flagstone Floor:
1. The construction concrete floor was prepared by cleaning it with SCR at a 2-1 dilution rate (2-parts water to 1-part SCR). The floor was scrubbed with a brush broom and then rinsed clean.
2. Once the concrete surface was dry, SureSpray with (1) color pack of Desert Sand then was squeegeed onto the floor. This process smooths out any variations in the concrete and will act as your grout line.
3. Using a ½” fiber tape, the pattern and borders were placed onto the dried scratch coated concrete surface. Three strips were then placed done per line needed. Once all tape had been placed, it was cut with a razor with an irregular shape. This will create a random stone edge, once the cut fiber taped is removed.

Step 3: Making Concrete Look Like Wood Flooring:
1. The concrete floor was prepared by cleaning it with SCR at a 2-1 dilution rate (2-parts water to 1-part SCR). The floor was scrubbed with a bush broom and then rinsed clean.
2. Once the concrete surface was dry, SureSpray with (1) color pack of Desert Sand was squeegeed onto the floor. This process smooths out any variations in the concrete and will act as your grout line.
3. Once material fully dried, lines were drawn out in pencil, for ideal stop points, if needed during this process.
