Fake rocks/stone..

Anyone ever see them? They look real and are made of a lightweight polymer.

Used to decorate a wall instead of real rocks/stone, these rocks add a nice change of pace for any design. Picture an entire wall covered with chunks of stone.

Sound like a commercial? Hope not, I'm trying to find them.

If anyone knows about 'em, please let me know.

Thanks

Howdy Plantman,
Saw a movie prop rock many years ago. Don't know where to get them. A friend of mine made his own to hang up on his wall. Used high density styrofoam and air paint gun. Just sand the foam into the shape you want and paint them.

Cultured stone I'm looking at a wall full of it right now, and half of my house is covered with it. The plastic ones just don't look right try Cultured Stone which is a concrete product.

There are two places in my area that sell them.
One place is on University (it would have a Sarasota mailing address)
The other is on S.R. 70 and would have a Bradenton mailing address.

I'll see if I can catch a name in the next few days.

This summer I installed pergo (love it or hate it), tile, and other misilanious stuff for peoples homes. There was some of that fake rock stuff around a fireplace on somebodys rental home, and the owner asked us to remove them (me accually, after "work")

Turns out that when you punch them, the knuckle imprent is left, although it hurts alot. There were a few "stones" on the wall that were punched up when the last rentor left (said something about not paying... then evicting them.... hence the new flooring )... I punched one to see, and it hurt, but it wasnt very friendly to being hit.... If you have kids, I would use the stuff because if something hits it (read fight happens, and a head gets smashed into it) it gives alot more then stone work...

But if not, if something hits it, you get to replace it... You did save the paint so it matches, right?




Anyways the spray adhesive stuff works ok, but demolition was very easy (putty knife and then thin crowbar) I'd try something else.
