Hi Pat -  

I took your advise and got 5 lbs of Pumice dust.  We mixed about 9 handful per quart into the flat wall paint I get a home depot.  Probably should have mixed it thinner with more water, because it went on thick and got a bit clumpy - but really came out to a nice sidewalk texture I think.  People seemed happy with the surface and it sure did hold the chalk.  Have you seen the photos yet - a bunch are on the GNSI FB page.  Many thanks for the coaching - missed you being there.  Clara wants me to do a write up on it for the journal later - hope to get to that.

How did you end up doing the ground for the mural. Looks fantastic!
