What is the advantage of the aggregate transfer method?
One advantage is that a small amount of expensive aggregate may be spread over a rather large surface area. Another advantage is that the aggregate can be distributed in a way that allows the worker to see ahead of time the general impression that will be given by the finished concrete sufrace. A third advantage is that the aggregate can be distributed to form patterns and if more than one kind of aggregate is used very sharp division of color can be achieved. It is quite possible to do intricate work by this method and the technique is useful for producing murals.
