Smooth style for painting on round columns and concrete wall
This is a finishing where you can see the original concrete with some small holes still there but the big holes have been patched, all the corners are straight and the tie holes are exposed but all the damaged have been repaired
To get this finishing is necessary to start since the form work, the wood for the forming have to be prep first and after striping the form fix all the corners and fill big holes, mix a good color in order to match existing color.
This style of finishing feels to the touch like marble, the white spots means that the material has filled all the uneven surface and when painted will be totally smooth, this finishing is perfect for columns that will be painted.
