Product Details

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:

  1. Prepare your concrete surface by sweeping away any debris and cleaning with an organic degreaser. Rinse thoroughly and allow the surface to dry completely.
  2. Put on your dust mask, goggles, and safety gloves. Shake the Antiquing™ Stain bottles vigorously to activate the pigment.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

FAQ

Click/Tap each question to hide/show the answers.

How do I remove antiquing stain from test area?

Antiquing stain can be removed using odorless mineral spirits.

When I applied my antiquing stain, why am I not seeing a difference in color?

The pigments in antiquing stain nest down into the pores so it appears as if there is no change in color to the concrete surface. Once you apply our acrylic solvent-based sealer, you will see a dramatic difference in color.

I am using the antiquing concrete stain in my garage. prepped/ sprayed the stain but it has left a heavy dust on the surface after over 12 hours. Is this normal?

The Antiquing Stain by itself is only a pigment based topical colorant and needs a sealer otherwise the color will just wash/erode away.

How-To Guide

Printable Antiquing™ How-To Guide

Step 1: Preparation

  • Cover areas at risk of over-spray with plastic drop cloth.
  • Newly poured concrete must cure for 30 days before application.
  • For existing concrete:
    • Remove paint or previously applied sealer using Soy Gel Stripper.
    • Remove carpet glue or other adhesives using Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover.
    • Remove any oils, dirt, debris, Soy Gel Stripper, or Bean-E-Doo® Mastic Remover using scrub brush and ProClean Degreaser™.
  • Verify absorption by pouring a cup of water in various areas. If not absorbed within five minutes, etch the surface with CitrusEtch™, then neutralize surface with ProClean Neutralizer™ and rinse thoroughly.
  • Allow the concrete to thoroughly dry before application.

Step 2: Application

Coverage rate is approximately 200 square feet per gallon. Coverage rates may vary based on concrete texture, surface porosity, and application method.

NOTE: Only apply Antiquing™ Stamped Concrete Stain when surface temperature is between 40 °F (4 °C) and 95 °F (35 °C).

CAUTION: Antiquing™ is flammable, harmful if swallowed, or inhaled. Keep away from heat, sparks, and flame. Store and use with adequate ventilation, allowing airflow to disperse vapors. Before applying Antiquing™, open windows and doors and extinguish all open flames such as gas appliance pilot lights, candles, etc. Do not smoke, use a lighter or matches, or anything that could cause a potential spark.

Spraying:

  • Remove all filters from pump-up sprayer
  • Shake Antiquing™ well before pouring into sprayer.
  • Spray Antiquing™ on surface in slightly circular motions with irregular overlaps.
    • Shake sprayer tank from side to side often to prevent color from settling.
