we use those formliners for ALL of our pool coping as well. We have a custom pitted limestone stamp we made for the copings. Those two together look about as real as it can get

took this from my post in another thread vital, the pics are some of the stuff ive worked on

Sounds like we both do some pretty cool stuff!! Our company is small too, 4 of us

Our hawii thing is pretty much for fun and some money, not alot. WE did work out there last yar without a license? The guy we get most of our work from builds houses out there, we did his driveway last year. Im assuming he has the license so thats why we didnt get in trouble!

For our form liners just no finishing the faces, they are all pitched correctly, anywhere one formliner is butted up we rock chisel that line so it looks like individual stones laid in. You have to strip them before its hard and do the finishing touches, works pretty slick, at least for what were going for.

ours is the stuff on the bottom, not the snake.
We wet cut all control joints then from there into a random pattern, 6 different textures, all rock chisled lines, hand colored. lots of work pretty much. All the walls we poured and the water feature was from a mold we made. Absolutley every square inch is stamped too, I hate it when people get lazy and dont get all the way against walls and cuts and stuff, flat spots look like shat. heres some of our stuff
Cemstone - Decorative Concrete Award Winners

ours is the wall at the bottom. It was pretty much 2 half pipe skate ramps for the form. Bolted everything together and filled it up with mud. We had a custom engineered 10,000psi mix made for thast one Had to have a crane place them for us

12ft high 11ft wide i think it was, 12" thick at the bottom, 18" at the top
