    Actual Pictures of Plasterscapes?

    Hi all, I am new to the forum and late to the game. We must chose a plaster color in the next couple of days and it is driving me crazy. We are going with Plasterscapes to get some color, but we cannot find any pictures of pools with plasterscapes. We are thinking deep sky blue or deep turquoise.

    Info: We are in the Los Angeles area. The key is to have "color", not too pale or transparent. But, we also do not want the deep pond look.

    Any pictures of comments will help.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to TFP! Can your PB show you some pool with the colors you are considering? If not get some samples and put them in water at various depths to get an idea of the color.

    This is Aruba Sky in QuartzScapes. Does it have to be PlasterScapes? FYI, this is not my pool. It belongs to another person in So Cal who recently built a pool and I always loved her color. I hear Quartz is more durable than plaster, which explains why it's more expensive.

    Here you go, Plasterscapes Deep Sky Blue. It was not the color we were going for, but we like it and are happy with it.

    So what don't you like about it since you said it wasn't the color you were going for? I think the color is really pretty and I think it will change some as the plaster cures.

    I haven't heard of that before (that I remember, but I'm not getting any younger). I'd say you got what you got.

    I said it was not the color we were going for...we wanted a bit more towards cobalt blue. Took my contractors recommendation. The positive is that we still like it.

    Bmores, I meant to say the color changed somewhat as the water became clearer, not as the plaster cured as I previously said (must have been my old brain thinking of something else!). Thanks for pointing that out.

    Ah, of course. Definitely true and I my brain didn't take me there. A few good chems can clear up water just like meds can do for us.

    Re: Actual Pictures of Plasterscapes?

    I have the same problem you posted about in 2015. I just found this site today. I too have to quickly decide on a PlasterScapes color and am having a hard time choosing a color based on small samples, without actually seeing photos. I don't want the deep pond look, either! I also don't want green or very dark. I've tentatively narrowed it down to sky blue, deep sky blue, deep turquoise and blue harbor, though I think blue harbor may be darker than we want. I'd love to know what color you chose and if you're happy with it. Also any photos of your pool color would be terrific. I appreciate any help! Wendy

    I saw your post from 2015 and now it's 2017 and I'm in the same position as you were––being rushed into a PlasterScape color based only on small samples. Having trouble finding actual photos. I'm curious, what color did you choose and are you pleased with it? I'd love to see a photo. We're now leaning toward a sky blue, deep sky blue, harbor blue, or deep harbor blue. Thank you so much for any help you can offer!

    We live in Southern CA and need to quickly chose a PlasterScapes color for a 20'x40' in ground pool. All we have are small sample colors. We really need to see some photos. We want a vibrant blue or turquoise blue––not dark or green. We've narrowed it down to Deep Turquoise, Deep Sky Blue and Blue Harbor. Hoping to see some photos of these plaster colors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
