shimmering sea mixed in pebbles or sprinkled over finish?
It is almost plaster time for our pool. We are going with Wetedge Satin finish (smaller pebbles like the pebblesheen). We have decided to add the abalone shells. For those of you who added the sparkly shells, was it mixed into the plaster already as they spread it?? I have been told that they are going to sprinkle the shells over the top as they spread the pebble mixture. Supposedly the shells will be more visible this way since I won't have half the shells disappear because they are not at the surface when spread. Also, I've been told that I will need less bags of the abalone this way. I'm just afraid that the shells won't be spread out evenly if they are just being tossed on top and that we will end up with clumps of sparkle in some areas and bare spots in others. Has anyone else had the plaster installers sprinkle the abalone directly on the surface as they spread the mixture??? Thanks for the info.
