Cleaner and Degreaser, Scrub Brush
The Cleaner and Degreaser
in your DIY Concrete Antiquing Stain Kit is used to prepare your stamped concrete for staining. Paint, oil, and other materials on your stamped concrete won’t allow the stain to bond. So, in order to get the best result possible, these materials need to be cleaned from the surface.
Mix 4 ounce concentrate bottle of Cleaner and Degreaser with one gallon of water.
The Cleaner and Degreaser will easily remove any unwanted materials from your stamped concrete. Once the surface has been cleaned and swept free of dust and debris, let it dry completely. Now you are ready to apply the concrete antiquing stain.
Applying Concrete Antiquing Stain

The Gallon of Concrete Antiquing Stain
included in your Concrete Stain Kit is the colorant that will stain your stamped concrete. Concrete Antiquing Stain is available in 29 unique colors. A gallon of concrete antiquing stain is enough to complete a 200 square foot project. This amount of stain accounts for multiple layers for you to achieve your desired color for your outdoor stamped concrete.

This kit has everything you need, from start to finish, to stain your outdoor concrete.
NOTE: Spray the concrete antiquing stain in a corner of your project area to test.
Spray the concrete antiquing stain in even layers across the entire concrete surface until you achieve a “wet” consistency. Be sure to shake the pump sprayer periodically to avoid clumping around the nozzle.
Allow the final coat of concrete antiquing stain to dry for up to 6 hours before sealing.
Sealing the Stamped Concrete
Acrylic Sealer, Solvent Based, Satin
You must apply sealer
after using Antiquing stain. If you skip this step, the final color will not show and the stain can be washed off.

is the perfect product to finish your concrete antiquing stain project. This sealer is perfect for outdoor concrete, is easy to apply, and highlights the underlying colors of your newly stained concrete pavers.
To apply the sealer, simply pour it into a Sealer Sprayer, or pour directly onto the concrete surface and spread evenly using a Floor Trim Pad.
Once the final coat of sealer has dried, you’re all done! Enjoy your newly concrete antiquing stained stamped concrete!
