No Lee, You paint the area to be decorated with flakes first , then you put the flakes in a bucket or container and shake the smaller particles to the bottom.

2. Work in 3’ x 3’ (1 x 1 m) sections to ensure that the color flakes are evenly distributed.
3. Apply color flakes directly onto the wet painted surface.
4. Throw the color flakes up into the air and let them distribute evenly on the wet painted surface.
5. Repeat these steps until you have finished the entire area.
6. After the surface is completely dry, sweep up any loose flakes remaining on the surface.
Thank you for the inquiry! Read Less

Answer: 
Hey Lee.
You will not mix the flakes in the paint, you will want to paint a 4 ft by 4 ft area and then sprinkle the chips on the surface while the paint is still wet. Continue this process every 4 ft to insure that the paint is still wet when applying chips, overlapping 1 inch each time to insure that it blends evenly. You can then apply a clear coat over the chips.

Answer: 
Hello Ben,
Thanks for your question. These flake colors are unique to the product and are based on popular decorative colors in the industry. Therefore, we don't have a corresponding tan paint color to exactly match that flake. You could compare it with swatches at the store, though, to get an approximation.
Well wishes for your project!

I have a very large surface that I need to cover and really need the flakes to cover some imperfections and was just wondering if I could use porch and floor paint instead of an epoxy paint.

Answer: 
Hello AIRE,
Thanks for your question. We would actually recommend against using any of our products in a shower. Our flakes and the coating are not designed to stand up to that degree of heavy water exposure or standing water. I can suggest checking with Home Depot for another brand's coating that may be suited to your project needs.
Well wishes for your project!

Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by this product has very poor granule consistency I recently used this product to complete a garage floor i had epoxeyed. i was very disappointed . the very last step was to apply this product and it completely ruined my project. I am a professional and had done this many times before, including 1 month before with this very same product. . the consistency was great and as this floor is two doors down from the one i finished a month ago i am sure i will not get the contracts for the two other residents that inquired while i was in the base color phase. my floor is ruined and i am at a loss to explain this to my client. the granulate consisted of a very heavy "Black " content and made the floor look like it had been covered with pepper. . The black flakes seem to be much smaller and dominant in the package. i can not define to you how disappointed i am with this product. December 31, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Behr Paint and Flakes I used Behr Porch and Floor paint on a concrete floor, we did two coats, then about two weeks later we applied a third coat and I sprinkled the flakes on. This is a summer Cabin that we have, we did not return for two weeks so the paint and flakes had plenty of time to dry, We love it, I want to apply a 'wet seal' but cannot find any information if I can or not, we would recommend Behr paint and the flakes to anyone.
