Stenciling acid stain can appear a bit daunting at first glance. To be sure, the work can be exactly but the outcome spectacular! Renee P. of Studio, CA resurfaced her patio removing layers of epoxy paint before overlaying the surface and acid staining. She completed the project herself and has provided an account below of how she did it:
“I resurfaced my back patio, then added the faux flagstone overlay topping. I searched numerous websites to find the right acid stain for the faux flagstones. I chose Direct Colors because I liked the deco gel and acid stain sample kits and the color selection. Orders were delivered promptly and the website was easy to navigate. I enjoyed the acid staining the most. It was so much fun creating unique yet realistic-looking flagstones. Also fun seeing friends fooled by my handiwork. Direct Colors Acid Stains gave me the look I envisioned. Great products and great service. I couldn’t ask for more.
My old patio caused me to cringe. My new patio makes me smile, especially because I did it myself.”
