    Anyone know where to get supplies to duplicate granite rocks, specifically the mica that is in the rock to get a more realistic look? I have searched supply catalogs but keep turning up dead ends.

    Smooth on if your casting from molds. They make a powder to mix in urethane resin.
    If your making them, Matuskas has a nice rock plaster.

    I was going to suggest fleck and byrdman beat me to it. I haven't seen it in a long time.

    That's it! Looks like they changed the name.
