You would agree with the following scheme ? https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8417/29404428144_8118f46e3a_c.jpg The result will be something like this: https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5586/29998230366_c76f06d3a6_c.jpg Again, this is only a test, I still have to work with the materials but tha...

I always assumed that the final appearance of the red sandstone was this: https://www.flickr.com/photos/143771393@N04/29909173872/in/album-72157674462092306/ (Not very red really) Is this a later addition?
