Gray Mud turned Red

Here's a picture essay of the patio pour. It took me nearly 2 months to get all the posts set, forms built, and all the rays plus the sun part poured. I think it turned out pretty cool. I still have to stain the rays and experiment some with the red dye. Maybe it will turn out like I hope.

What it used to look like

Beginning of 1st pour

1st one finished

Magic - grey to red

Just about finished
Finished with the concrete, except for staining the rays....Now on to covering the patio.

Until next time.....
