    Anyone heard of spraying butter milk on stone, or brick to give it an aged look?

    I saw it on T.V. I guess the milk rots/brakes down on the stone to give it a weathered look.

    Anyone ever tried this?:confused:

    Yeah, It works. and will also allow mold to grow on the rocks.

    We have always used horse manure. I have a friend who has a horse farm so supply is know problem and a customer does not know and it will not wash off.
