Our rock coloring system uses acrylic stains that have been formulated to bond to both our cast product and also stamped concrete or hand textured mortar areas.
The best way to apply the stain is to use simple spray bottles. For bigger projects you will want to use pump sprayers. For strong color, spray stain on a dry surface but most of the time it is better to spray on a wet or damp surface. Use a wet sponge to dab away drips before they dry.
SHAKE THE STAIN SPRAYER before and during use. If the stain is not properly mixed the surface will appear shiny and may be slippery when wet. For one gallon and 5 gallon pails that have sat for several months, agitation with a drill and mixer paddle is recommended.
Use as little stain as possible because too many layers of stain make the surface look pasty and will age faster than light staining. Keep from freezing; stains have a one year shelf life.
