Precast wall panels can be given an architectural finish, where the concrete itself is coloured and/or textured. Architectural wall panels are manufactured from purpose-built moulds. Mould liners can be used to create patterns. Pigments and aggregates can be added to achieve a variety of different colours and textures. The surface of the panel can then be finished in a variety of different finishes: they can be stained or painted, or polished, brushed, honed, grit-blasted, etched or water washed.
