Synthetic Rock Re-Painting - Magic Can Happen For You!
Why do you think you spent so much money building your very own private oasis paradise? Could it be because you wanted a special place you could feel the magic? Did the magic really happen for you? It has been my experience that extreme disappointment sadly is the harsh reality after a lack luster non imaginative synthetic rock re-painting is completed.
The very first thing I do when I go to a new clients home is ask if their last synthetic rock re-painting project has met or exceeded their wildest expectations 99% of the time the answer is a resounding NO.
My next question is; so what was your vision? How did you see the finished project in your mind's eye, some clients can tell me and for the ones who can't, I send to my pinterest page so they can see what inspires me.
This is the fun part for me because I get to experience a magic new vision; I feel the most important part of any rock painter's job is to get on the same page with their new clients so the magic can happen
Hit the pinterest button below and see what inspires me and all my clients.
This is a must see.
!- Prep Work, Prep Work, Prep Work, Ok you get my point, If the prep work is done correctly the new
synthetic Rock paint job will last ten years or more. First we remove all existing old paint and stain by sandblasting and power washing.
2- Next; we spray a commercial concrete densifire on the entire water feature. This permanent product penetrates 4'' into the shell of the synthetic rock creating a hard waterproof shield inside the synthetic rock that stops hydro-static water pressure from blowing off the new paint job.
3- Next; an epoxy bonding primer is sprayed over the entire water feature; This step guarantees a strong permanent bond for the stain or paint used. I know all this prep work sounds really expensive and the truth is its not cheap until you consider not having to repaint for a decade or more and your next repaint will only be a INEXPENSIVE touch-up.
4-Next; it's time for the re-paint job. Pick up a real rock look at it closely you will find 5 to 7 different colors even in a gray rock. We capture this exact process in every rock we paint, This is one of the reasons why we capture the dramatic realism of real rocks
5- The next step is air brush magic we airbrush realistic highlights in the rock that produces a 3-d effect and unparalleled realism. So the rock looks real and your happy well I'm not done Yet
6-I promised you magic, We dust your water feature with a little real metal flake this gives a magic sparkle at night and you'll never notice it by day the truth is this is a Disney fairy dust trick and last we water proof the entire paint job with our UV. Treatment
Amazing Art - Award Winning Water Feature
This So Cal pool won Best Pool in 1989 from Better Homes and Gardens and the homeowners picked my company to restore it. www.fauxstain.com We spent three weeks re-painting and the clients were thrilled with the end results, This water feature was built by skilled faux rock builders from Knots Berry Farm and they really did an amazing Job, This restoration really felt like we were restoring a Picasso, the client wanted the exact same look and feel it had in 1989 and we delivered. If I sound like I am a little Proud It's because I am, I would not have picked the colors used but my clients wanted exact match and we did it.
Color- Fiji Tropical Paradise - Brown, Tan, Rust, Green, Black, White, Gray.
This is a beautiful example of Fiji rock; I painted this project with seven different colors to achieve this exotic look. My client showed me an amazing picture from their last vacation, and I copied it in every detail possible. On the last day they looked at me and said I captured their dream. For an artist there is no bigger complement. I just wanted to share this.
