Marion and his wife worked on this demo together, laying out and engraving a complicated graphic. Many steps followed, including chemical- and water-based stain applications, stamping patterns, and handcarving shapes in overlay cement with gauging trowels and hand tools, applying microtopping overlays, and color-over-color applications for variation and highlighting. They sealed their work as a final step.
