Patina Concrete Countertop Finish
Dylan Myers of Frederick, MD began using Direct Colors products back in 2013 but we didn’t see pictures of his work until he contacted us about a concrete table he’d formed and stained. He had this to say about his project:
“You guys are awesome and love your product and all the help. Here is my latest creation and wanted to share it with you. Maybe you would like to use it as a featured product. I used a combination of 600 and 609 concrete pigments to integrally color the bench combined with Cola, English Red, Coffee Brown and Black Acid Stain Project Photo Gallery liquid and Deco Gel Acid Stains. I wish I could tell you exactly how, but it took me a very very long time to perfect.”
And perfect he did. We were mightily impressed with his spectacular countertop design and responded:
“I’m in love with this project!!!!! That is some fine work and thank you so much for sending it to us. I’d love to hear more about your process and do a feature for our website and facebook on your most excellent project.”
Dylan is now one of our ProDC Trusted a Contractors!
“Dylan has a rare talent with concrete countertop design,” says concrete expert Shawna Turner . “He has superb color understanding as is evidenced by his oxidized patina concrete bench project but also can produce from our products finishes even we wouldn’t have imagined possible. It’s very gratifying to have an artisan like Dylan working with our products and I’m sure his countertops inspire others to try their hand at their own DIY projects.”
