Introducing the Antiquing™ Stain Trial Kit - the perfect solution for those looking to test out the color options for their outdoor concrete surfaces before committing to a full-size purchase. Our kit includes 3 color choices in 4-ounce sizes, as well as a choice of satin or gloss sealer in a 4-ounce size and 4 foam applicators.
The Antiquing™ Stain is a semi-transparent formula that is perfect for restoring color to faded or discolored stamped, broomed, or textured concrete. It is easy to apply and suitable for a variety of exterior surfaces, including driveways, patios, and pool decks.
It is important to note that the included sealer is a crucial part of the process and must be used to see the true final color of the stain. Most customers who skip sealing and complain about not seeing any color simply need to use the sealer to make the actual color pop.
With the Antiquing™ Stain Trial Kit, you can test out the various color options and see how they look on your concrete surfaces before investing in a full-size purchase. It is the perfect way to ensure you get the perfect look for your outdoor living space.

Using the Antiquing™ Trial Kit is easy! Follow these steps to test out different color options on your surfaces:
- Prepare your concrete surface by sweeping away any debris and cleaning with an organic degreaser. Rinse thoroughly and allow the surface to dry completely.
- Put on your dust mask, goggles, and safety gloves. Shake the Antiquing™ Stain bottles vigorously to activate the pigment.
- Use the foam applicator brush to apply the stain to the concrete surface, layering until a wet consistency is achieved. Allow the stain to dry for 6-8 hours.
- Once the stain has dried, it is time to apply the sealer. Choose between the satin or gloss finish and use the foam applicator brush to apply the sealer in thin layers. Two coats are recommended for maximum protection.
- Allow the sealer to dry for up to 24 hours before using the surface.
Note: It is important to apply the sealer after using the Antiquing™ Stain, as it is necessary to see the true final color and to prevent the stain from being washed off.
