    Wonderful! I use slate saved from an old barn across the street after it collapsed to put Bible verses throughout my vegetable garden but I really like your idea. One question. How did you imprint the rocks? Do I need special equipment or talent? Thank you.

      I use old bread pans as "mold" and vinyl concrete mix. For letters I purchased stamp-like thingies at craft store. They have an aisle with everything you need to make

      I've never heard of vinyl concrete. How does it work?

      It is great product. It's called Quikrete vinyl concrete patcher. truevalue.com, carry's it. There are other that similar, but I use the one without the rocks to make projects with my gbabies.

    what is the actual name of the thing you used to stamp the words on the bricks; where can I find it, and how much should it cost?
