Stamped concrete is a delicate two color process. The base color is going to show most, Dye color will show where depression is the deepest. The base color is a cement-based powder and the release agent is a powder dye. The color you see on the first night will be 100% of the release color. The day after we pour the concrete we will return and wash off the bulk of the release color, along with removing the forms the very next day. The concrete may be walked on at this time with caution. Typically, we have now wait for the concrete to cure for 28days. At this time, we will return to apply both colors to the vertical areas of the steps, porches, etc., and then we apply a 30% roll-on sealer, this is very slippery. You may also add ″Shark Grip″ to improve your traction.
