    Is the colour mixed into the cement or painted on? How do you accomplish the mottling?

    Color is mixed at the final stage after the rocks are shaped, mottling is old art school water color techniques applied to wet mortar...

    Exactly. Glad I listened to my High School art teacher! Funny how things transfer over...
