We are going to use boards and various supports to make a kind outline of what it is going to look like.

The next step we will do is use a screed to make certain the surface is level and level to perfection. We’ll use a bull float, a skimming tool, to make a totally smooth surface.
After we have got our surface leveled and smooth, we will have to employ a compound known as a release agent to make the stamping process possible. Remember, we’ve to nail the concrete while it is still wet and uncured. So to prevent using the tools we remove with the stick on the surface or harm the end, we employ the release agent to create a protective coating over the cement. After we are done making the pattern you want. We will wash off that release broker and the outcome is going to look good. After applying the release broker, we will begin the stamping process.
