decorative Concrete porch floor over concrete?

Posted by druidclark (My Page) on

We poured our porch a couple of years ago, thinking that we'd put in slate or something similar. Now DH thinks we didn't allow enough space (height) for the mortar and that (1) pieces will be too loose or (2) they'll be too thin and prone to cracking in the winter.

So I came up w/ the idea of pouring another concrete/epoxy floor and putting leaves, etc. in it and etching it.

Anyone ever tried this and have you had any luck?
