We have Six standard composite stone finishes available for all of the standard and bespoke products, we also offer a colour matching service which is invaluable when you would like to match up to existing masonry, if the colour matching is required we will need a small sample sending to us, this service is free of charge but is subject to a minimum order.
We also offer a shot blast service (stone etching), our standard product unless a reproduction will be a smooth finish, we can etch the surface of the stone to give a textured pitted surface, this is a favourite with customers who need to match in existing aged stone or are using reclaimed materials and want a product that isn't new looking, the other benefit being the stone tends to age much more quickly when etched.

Light etch/smooth Heavy etch Ageing using coffee
Artificial ageing can be achieved in-situ with the use of coffee (chicory is best) and or
charcoal,in both treatments suspend either coffee or charcoal in water and paint on to
the surface it may take several applications to get the desired effect, the benefit of using coffee
is a more rapid natural ageing after application due to the organic nature of coffee, please
try a sample patch first on a blind spot to make sure you will be happy with the results,
there are other techniques such as acrylics but this is best done by professional .
