The process of pressing rubber stamps into freshly, oftentimes colored concrete. Imprints are deeper than that of stenciling. Concrete can either be colored on the mixing truck, or it can be thrown on the top and worked into the concrete. A release agent, usually of an offsetting color is used on top of the concrete to allow the stamps to release from the concrete without the concrete sticking to the stamp.
This color provides variation within the concrete to allow the concrete to present a more realistic appearance.
