In his article Going From Good to Great using Overlays and Microtoppings - Trevor A Foster writes:
"Almost anyone can squeegee down a couple of coats of topping. But overlays and microtoppings are handcrafted, not generic flooring you buy on a roll.
He asks: "How do you go from doing what anyone can do to creating your own distinctive look and giving customers exceptional projects?"
He then comments: "My advice for moving from good to great resurfacing boils down to two things. First, get the basics right. Maybe anyone can do it, but bad fundamentals will quickly convert into bad results, and that brings down the reputation of the whole industry. Second, become an artist. Use your creativity and all the color technologies and finishing techniques available today to really make your work stand out."
