HOW TO CHANGE THE COLOR OF STAMPED CONCRETE
First, clean stamped concrete thoroughly.
Pour antiquing stain into a pump-up sprayer.
- Shake antiquing stain before applying to stamped concrete
Apply the stain evenly onto the concrete, the fluid will flow into the crevices and indentations of the surface.
Let the first coat of stain dry completely before applying the second coats
- Allow the final coat of antiquing stain to dry for a minimum 5-6 hours
- Finally, apply a Solvent Based Acrylic Concrete Sealer (best choice of outdoor sealer)
DIY SPOTLIGHT: DIY STAMPED CONCRETE BORDER PINK BE GONE!
I wanted to send you some photos of what my husband and I accomplished over the Memorial Day weekend with your help. We have a stamped concrete border that was installed about 4 years ago.
The contractor dyed the concrete a reddish-pink color instead of the khaki color we asked for. I was very upset after seeing the result. He assured us that the color would “tone down” over time.
We never sealed the concrete as he instructed us to do every two years. We kept hoping the color would fade. Well, it finally faded to the hideous pink you see in the pictures!
I felt like I might as well have had pink plastic flamingos in my yard. A complete eyesore!! I sent pictures to your design team and explained my situation. Tommy responded that the Concrete Antiquing Stain was the product we should use and assured us it would help us resolve our dilemma. After ordering several samples and conducting various “experiments”, we saw that your Olive Concrete Antiquing Stain was going to do the best job of getting rid of the pink. Did it ever!!
We are so pleased with the Concrete Antiquing Stain and the Acrylic Concrete Sealer, Solvent-Based, Satin Finish!!!! Our border looks absolutely gorgeous and we were able to fix the eyesore without having to pay someone an exorbitant price (if we could have even found someone to fix it….we certainly weren’t going to call the original contractor even though he did a great job on the structure/stamping. His idea of color was way, way off).
I cannot thank you enough for all the guidance Tommy provided and the helpful information on your website. We are going to attempt to do our back patio now that we see that we can do it ourselves with professional results! Excellent products/ customer service and support!!!
