In the concrete world, someone is always coming up with a new idea. Here are a couple of the more interesting in form liners:

Thin bricks--Embedding thin bricks into concrete precast or tilt-up panels has been popular for several years. In 2006, though, Scott System introduced what they call Rim Snaps, a system to allow thin bricks to be cast into vertically formed walls. Thin brick sections are even available for inside or outside corners to wrap around the corner and create the appearance of normal brick. Architectural Polymers has a similar system.

Pictures and graphics—German form-liner-manufacturer Reckli has developed a method for achieving photographic images on concrete surfaces. An image, either a photo or a graphic, is scanned and converted into 256 grey scales. Using this scan, a CNC milling machine creates various thicknesses of lines onto sheets of form liner materials. The resulting images in the concrete are remarkably detailed.
