Cami,

Oh goody! thanks. Maybe I'll even be able to find out how the forum at Caeser's Palace was poured. Seems it was a big secret last time I asked.

thanks again

hey, there's a thought. Probably under all those acres of concrete!

Jimmy Hoffa is still on the payroll helping support the foundation of the Brendan Byrne Arena in the Meadowlands

He's a stand up kinda guy, isn't he, really swell! Of course a lot of people think he's rotten to the core.

It is, after all, humus that encourages flowers to be their best in nature. All things rotted it seems encourage growth.

Those floors at Caesar' are probably colored SLCs. As I had mentioned in a previous post MOST SLCs can't be colored but it is being done. I'm working on it.

Wow...would be some really crafty colouring. Tho' those hollywood types can pull off damned near anything. So how would the texture be acheived? Next time I'm there, I swear I ain't leaving until I find out all about this process. I should maybe post the query to a concrete board. It's been one those nagging questions with no definitive answers.

SLC's...could be, could be...

Yeah, I'd also like to find out more about these toppings and their limitations. I can envision creating some really neat stuff with it in conjunction with tile. I saw today in a magazine where Mapei has come out with a product called Ultratop that is a "stainable, self leveling, cementious topping" designed for commercial and industrial flooring use. But a search of their site and the internet comes up with very little; and I want pictures. Maybe Flatfloor know something of this...Are you out there Jim?
