to clean and prepare your concrete for staining. Paint, oil, and other materials on your concrete won’t allow AcquaTint™ to bond. So, in order to get the best result possible, these materials need to be cleaned from the surface. Once the surface has been cleaned and swept free of dust and debris, let it dry completely before proceeding to apply the concrete antiquing stain.
With any DIY project, safety should be your number one priority. When applying AcquaTint™ or any concrete coloring product, it’s important to take precautions to ensure your safety, and the safety of those around you.
Spiked Shoes should be used in concrete staining projects to prevent footprints and slipping when applying the stain. AcquaTint™ must be shaken vigorously before application. The spiked Shoes will allow you to walk across and around your project area without affecting your previous layer.
