Our fireplace is flanked in fake stone - made of painted concrete. We want to cover it with something that will make a relatively smooth surface and paint over that with textured paint.
We tried "water putty" but found it took forever - there's a lot of mixing to do and the putty dries pretty fast.
So we've got it somewhat puttied - but haven't really gotten anywhere. We're having a "do" at our house on Monday night and are desparate to fix it. Of course it looks a thousand times worse than the orginal, tacky fake stone.
What about "mastik". Does anyone know how fast that dries? And, can you paint over it?
We're looking for something that is pre-mixed, that doesn't dry too fast, and that can be painted over. Any ideas?
