We used the color Autumn Stone in this project. The stones are made from recycled wine bottles and so light that they are easy to work with and dry quickly. You can buy AirStone easiest at your local Lowes. Here are a few tips and pieces of advice for working with AirStone.
2. You definitely need a level. The hardest part is making sure every layer stays level. Especially with our project, because our ground slopes, we had to be extra careful to make sure everything stayed even and level. Don't even get started until you have a small level with you.
3. When cutting stone to size, we found a handsaw worked best. You only have to cut pieces as you get to the end or the edges if the pre-cut pieces are too big. We had to custom cut some pieces where the porch met the wall and at the very end.
4. The stones have a slight residue on them that will stain your hands (you can get the stain off but it is work to scrub them clean). Dom learned that the hard way after a few days and finally got some gloves. Thin gloves will help keep your hands clean while working with the stones.
5. Having two people is so helpful. When we had someone to watch the kids, I would unwrap stones, group colors and sizes together and then hand them to Dom. He would do the adhesive and stick them. It was nice to work together!
Here is a video tutorial of AirStone being used for an interior project so you can see how easy it is to use.
p.s. don't mind the dumpster in our driveway. They are picking that up tomorrow but I couldn't be bothered to wait to take pictures! We also had to dig up some of the grass in the front for the project and grass took a beating during all of the work so we will have to get that all fixed this spring.
