E-Crete Decorative Concrete Workshop

Saturday & Sunday, April 4th & 5th - 8am to 4pm
Boise, ID

E-crete is a decorative concrete surfacing product that goes beyond floor overlays by taking concrete finishes to a whole new level. Students will learn some of the hottest looks using the latest in engineered concrete technology for floors, walls, furniture and countertops. Learn from the best instructors in the business as you create unique marketable concrete finishes.

Saturday - Basic Application 101

This training program is for anybody who has never worked with concrete or plaster. It includes 2 hours on Mixing E-Crete powder & admisxers, the window of working time of the various mixes, mesureing & dosing polymers & how they work. Two hours will also be spent showing the various methods of bonding the varied surfaces & the way to use the self-flowing system. Then you will spend 4 hours creating 3 finishes in standard colors that you can use in your portfolio!

Sunday - Color Creation

Understanding color is one of the most difficult aspects of decoration, and this course demystifies the various ways to create a color scheme. We will spend 2 hours on integrating powder colorant into the E-Crete trowel on overlay mix; the use of our 20 basic colors to create an unlimited palette; and incorporating the pigment powders into the admix polymers to make a tint base. Another 2 hours will explain the ways in which we use our foundation coat overlay in relation to color & transparency. One hour will cover the use of E-Crete urethane stain - how to color it with universal tint, various application methods, and incorporating mica powder into stain to get metallic & iridescent effects. Then you will have 3 hours to use your newly acquired skills to create 3 samples on 24" boards for your portfolio!
