The appearance of the finished product is very much influenced by the manner in which the dye is applied. Shake the mixture in the sprayer frequently to ensure an even, consistent color during the application. The dye should be sprayed going right to left, then north to south. Try not to spray on too thick. The dye will dry almost instantly. The more layers you apply the darker the color will become. Apply as thin a coat as possible to ensure color quality and appearance. Generally, 3-4 coats of dye should be sufficient for most applications, but additional dye can be applied to make the surface darker. Do not let the dye pool up in any area mop up these spots with a disposable rag. Allow product to dry thoroughly. Carefully use a dry buffer, soft cloth, or dust mop to remove excess colorant or residue on the surface before sealing. For more information, read over our step by step Concrete Dye How-to Guide.
