Haven't used the stain just yet, but more happy with their customer service. Had a little mixup with the shipping, but they were super quick to fix and get to me! Thank you guys!
We used the Deco Gel Acid Stain Gel to create a beautiful rustic concrete countertop look.
You guys are awesome. Love your acid stain, deco gel and concrete pigment products and all the help. Here is my latest concrete bench creation and wanted to share it with you. Maybe you would like to use it as a featured project or something.
“I’ve ordered Deco Gel Acid Stain and Concrete Pigments from Direct Colors before and have been happy with their products. They have great customer service so give them call or shoot them an email and see what they suggest!”
I found your Deco Gel acid stain gel while searching on the internet. What a great product. Will certainly find many more uses for it. Deco Gel is cleaner and easier to apply with less prep work to the surrounding areas. I have included a couple of pics that just don’t do justice to the actual finish look. It was awesome and my customer was thrilled. This is an exterior shower stall/bath house at the cottage. I used your Cola and Coffee Brown Deco Gel stains. Thanks for all the technical help. Thanks again and looking forward to new products to try!”
“I was scouring the internet looking for a quality garage floor coating and stumbled upon your website. I’ve used your products on a few home projects and absolutely love them. I have told numerous people about the Deco Gel Acid Stain and Liquid Colored Antique. The potential for Direct Colors product line is limitless and speaks for itself in the photos. Thank you!.”
Direct Colors was very helpful and offered advice on how to get the mottled look I was trying to achieve. The process was simple and the Deco Gel Acid Stains were quite easy to work with. I am pleased with the final appearance of the projects and look forward to many years of enjoyment using the countertops.
