  • Project Description:
    I was googling for a concrete stain and really liked the look of direct colors. I watched a few videos, it is pretty self explanatory. So I purchased and stained the concrete antique black 2 coats and used a Walmart craft gold acrylic paint to paint the cracks. I applied the sealer, sprayed the first coat and rolled the second. Mine isn’t shiny the whole way across because my cement isn’t smooth but love the outcome. I really love that this product was easy to use, had good how to videos and fast shipment. If your looking for a good diy product this is the one.
  • Personal Tips:
    The sealer smell is really strong so just be aware of that. Watch the videos. Remember if your concrete is porous you are going to use more stain. Don’t use any weight on your roller when applying sealer. It’s actually easier than I thought. And don’t worry about messing up cause you can’t. A very easy product to apply my first time ever doing anything like this.

  • Project Description:
    Sooooo we are a DIY family that let a stamped concrete area around our pool go for 19 years with only sealing it once after it was installed with a big box store sealer. After lots of research I ordered a sample of the antiquing stain and sealer. I was so impressed with the ease of this I thought this is a project I can do myself unlike most that I find and my husband has to complete. I ordered the 5 gallon buckets of each and started on a Friday with pressure washing the area. Started early Saturday morning with the stain and did a second coat that afternoon. Finished up on Sunday with two coats of sealer. The ease of this product was amazing. So simple for anyone to do regardless of your diy capabilities. Wishing I had done this sooner. Have received so many positive compliments. Took the concrete back to its original appearance after 19 ye ars of neglect. Makes our pool area so refreshed and modern looking once again.
  • Personal Tips:
    If In a windy area have a second person hold a piece of cardboard to prevent over spray. We bent a piece of cardboard to go around curved areas that had stone that we didn’t want to stain.

  • Project Description:
    Our original stamped concrete was supposed to be a beautiful dark charcoal color. However, the installers were in a hurry and power washed it too soon. They destroyed the color and sealer, leaving weird power was streaks. Your product saved our stamped concrete!
  • Personal Tips:
    Plan! We had a large area around a pool along with a back porch. We had to do it in stages. We have large dogs, so we had to fence off sections at a time. Secondly, we used a sprayer to apply the antique stain. You should agitate the sprayer fairly constantly to keep the pigment evenly dispersed.
