    I want to make some walls and ever perhaps a stone building. The type of rock I want would be rough cut field stone such as is found in Pennsylvania. I am not looking for nice even blocks. I guess that I somehow would have to make these out of plaster. How would you do this...especially, how would you get some stones sticking out more than others and make all the surfaces rough?

    Welcome to the gauge David!!!

    That Casey, he's a genius for sure, and so is Charlie, not just for his own work, but for remembering the thread.

    If Casey doesn't respond to your query, or another individual, you might just post another note right on the thread about the walls.

    Stippling is a technique where you poke at the plaster while it's settijg up...you can do this with a brush, a sponge, your fingers, popsickle stick, etc...
