    Here's a rock ledge I just finished for a cat.

    What do ya think??

    used plywood, burlap & a texture gun to create it.

    I'd say it looks pretty good! It's good you didn't over do it with the moss but I would probably throw a dab on the top. Most rocks I see in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when I go hiking have it on the top if its on the side. Just my thoughts on it!

    I have to ask though, what is a texture gun? Don't believe I have heard that term before.

    A texture gun is used for putting texture on drywall. It has a big hopper full of mud and uses air pressure to spray it on the wall or in this case rock.

    Yep.. That's what a texture gun does Rausch!

    I used drywall mud and plaster, then painted with airbrush and finished it off with just a light coat of the Kryon Rock Texture. My customer really like it!

    The only way I ever put up drywall is smooth. I was looking at Lowes and I think they have something that may do the job. I may investigate it a bit further when I have spare time (<-- what's that?!) Thanks for the explanation Rausch.

  7. What do you use to seal your rock?

    I didn't seal this one but I usually seal with a satin or flat Krylon finish....

    Another option for a drywall gun is to check your local pawn shops... That's whee I find lots of my stuff... I haven't bought a new dremel tool in I don't know when. I find them at the pawnshop for $8-10 and can usually talk them down on price....

    I got one at harbor freight for $30. Used it to texture my shop.
