“I’ve looked into concrete pigments for coloring plaster a number of times in the past. The liquid ones you can get at home improvement stores for concrete or grout never seem to work- they either take days to fully dry, never dry at all, or leave the castings really brittle. The problem with dry pigments, though, is that most places seem to only sell in 25 or 50 lb. quantities. Direct Colors sells 4 oz. and 8 oz. samples for $10 and $15, respectively. I bought a 4oz packet of the reddish color for making bricks, and a little goes a long long way. The pigments are really strong, and they are completely inert (I called and asked before ordering) so they don’t inhibit the plaster from setting. Great product.”

“We bought the same product last year to finish our concrete dye floor of our “local foods” market. It worked great and we are re-waxing with the DCI Concrete Floor Wax and Polish before we open for business on August 2nd!”

Thank you so much for your quick response. I’m so excited. My friends are so jealous….lol… They have never heard of acid stain concrete and they are having many good conversations about my floor. I’m trying to turn my home into a sustainable Green home as much as I can. I will definitely send pics of before and after once I’ve completed my concrete acid stain projects!!! Once again, Thank you so much for your time, expertise, patience and advice!! By the way, my Husband is so jealous, but proud of me for completing our decorative stained floors… You guys rock. I absolutely LOOOVE this company!!

Thank you greatly for your time and advice on the phone this morning. I am finding that the revealed color is indeed far, far darker then the initial appearance indicate. It’s a rich lustrous brown, and while not black, it certainly seems within tolerance for what the project photos of other Black Acid Stains look like. So, in sum, we’re all good here and I’ll be ordering additional concrete acid stain for future projects as I really appreciate the customer service. Thanks again.
