How to Stamp Concrete Using Brickform Decorative Fan Patterns
Fan pattern stamps mimic many traditional European paving techniques. Fan patterns are defined by their semi-circle or radius layout. Different fan patterns are generally distinguished by how they interlock or how the bottom portion of the texture terminates – in a semi-circle or point. Most fan patterns use traditional cobbles or brick texture.
Placement for fan pattern stamps is straightforward. The “nesting” or interlocking nature of the patterns makes them simple to layout. Stampers should make sure they have plenty of tools to go all the way across the slab and return by at least two tools. This will ensure consistent stamp placement free of gaps or overlap. Fan pattern. stamps may not be capable of texturing right up to the form in all cases, so have the corresponding touch up skin and touch up roller on hand.
