The ancients said, "No stone is strange in mountains, no stone is unclear in water, no stone is beautiful in gardens and no stone is elegant in rooms." Appreciate the stone, enjoy the stone pleasant, appreciate the stone wisdom, appreciate the stone pottery, appreciate the stone longevity. Most of the rockeries in classical gardens are shaped by natural rocks, assisted by exquisite layout by skillful craftsmen, and also by the charm of landscape paintings.
With the development of rockery manufacturing technology, because of the high price of natural rockery and the difficulty of finding natural rockery with strange shapes, materials made of GRC, mixed mortar and steel wire mesh have been derived, and rockery rockery has gradually become a substitute for natural rockery. As we all know, artificial rockeries are naturally less spiritual than natural rockeries. Therefore, how to make the plastic rockeries realistic is particularly important. This is also an important factor for the plastic rockery to be based on the rockery market, and is also a test of the rockery making techniques of a rockery construction team.
Whether the plastic rockery fabrication can achieve the simulation effect depends on the fabrication of the rockery face, the treatment of the color, the construction of the mountain structure and the integration with the environment.
The treatment of plastic rockery masonry mainly involves the texture, texture and color of rockery. According to the design requirements, the texture and colour are mixed with white cement or ordinary water powder in appropriate proportion with stone powder and colour powder to form mortar, which is treated by plastic surface techniques such as roughness, smoothness and hairing. Generally speaking, the shaping of texture, mainly composed of straight lines and supplemented by horizontal lines, can show steep and upright posture; while the shaping of mainly composed of horizontal lines and supplemented by straight lines can show chic and bold images.
In the treatment of color, according to the position of the moulded rocks, the appropriate iron oxide pigments (or propylene pigments) are selected to adjust and color. Coloring is carried out when the moisture of the plastic surface is not completely dry. The basic tone is mixed with pigment powder and cement and water, and dyed layer by layer. When 90% of the plastic surface is dry, a few green, black or white spots of different sizes and densities are sprinkled on the depression to enhance the stereoscopic and natural feeling.
The integration of rockery production and environment is the so-called "endless scenery". The production of rockery is moulding mountains, but also making scenery. Although rockery can be built independently in gardens or scenic spots, it can not exist independently out of the environment. Rockery with falling water, water softness highlights the magnificence and magnificence of the mountain, space effect is more saturated, more poetic and picturesque. Combine animal sculpture and green planting to create rich visual experience.
