         At the risk of returning to the subject at hand, how do you plan on coloring that cement to look like rock?

      Thanks I needed it today, they beat me up good! Too much to say here, but one step forward and 2 back, report goes to the cancer board and I'm off 6 months between CT scans  for 3...

       

      Color cement ... remember my curved arches mission? It's a hot pink, hold the hot. Yep Cement All

       

      I use stucco tints and I get 40 pound bags of CementAll. Years ago I bought a mud mixer, goes in my 1/2" drill. Dry wall mud settles and they mix it for uniformity. I use it to dry mix my tint in the powder. I have a screw top 5 gal bucket, came with pool chlorine tabs ... hold 40# of cement. Doesn't take much tint as they come in primary color. When the cement goes from green to white I get pastels.

       

      Former ocean sand is tan... so are the hills, scrub growth adds the texture as well as cactus...
