Answer: 
Actually it is Bronze and yes, you can leave it out. With any of the 3 colors that you use to create the granite look texturing, you can add extra or less to make them stand out more or be more subtle or just omit entirely. You can even change the look after you have done the texturing. You are given plenty of product to make adjustments.

Answer: 
You do not have to add the bronze. You can add as little or as much of the pearl mica, and the black as you like, it all depends on the look you want. I recommend watching some you tube videos to get some ideas on different applications to achieve different looks. Good luck!

How is it holding up?

This question is from Giani Granite Bombay Black Countertop Paint Kit

New York

March 12, 2015
For those who have used this product on kitchen counter tops ... how is it holding up?
I have a seasonal rental and I would like to redo the counter tops in the kitchen. We've spent
a bit of money to date on other updates and would like to save some money and not replace
the counter tops right away. Does it scratch or nick easily? Does it show rings from hot coffee
cups etc...I love our rental guests but they aren't always as careful as we would be...
Thanks for any info you can provide!!

I used Giani Granite to redo my counter tops. At first I absolutely LOVED it. It was beautiful, and very easy to apply. I was always very careful with my counter tops because I loved them, but after time, I started to notice a "tacky" sort of feeling that I could not wash off.

I used Giani Granite to redo my counter tops. At first I absolutely LOVED it. It was beautiful, and very easy to apply. I was always very careful with my counter tops because I loved them, but after time, I started to notice a "tacky" sort of feeling that I could not wash off. The "high traffic" areas had a stickiness to them that I did not like. Then I started to notice small places where little chunks were missing. After one year and 4 months, it started coming off in large chunks. I ended up having to remove all of it. Now I am back to square one, with what to do with my counter tops. I did also contact Giani, but never got any response from them. Very disappointed.....:( Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The Giani holds up very well on countertops if treated per instructions Our latest topcoat formula from January 2014 has especially held up well on the countertops. You will need to use hot pads and cutting boards on the surface to prevent any dulling or harm to the surface. The top coat is very durable. It can withstand up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

When I looked at it, it seemed like there wasn't enough, I put three coats of base coat on my counter top, it only calls for two, then I wasn't sure about the other steps either, but there was plenty in all the cans and the clear coat I put four coats on that also and it only called for two

Answer: 
The topcoat is black (see photos), but it's a flat black and I don't think it would work for what you want. I would be hesitant to apply only the black topcoat. What I would do, is put down the topcoat as instructed then put down the black accent and seal. My only concern would be if there would be enough of the black accent paint supplied to cover your entire countertop.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Kitchen Counter Upgrade This product made a dramatic difference to the appearance of my kitchen. It was much easier to use than I expected. Also, the clearer went on really well. I did wait the entire 2 weeks for it to cure and have had no problems at all. When my brother-n-law first saw the painted counters he asked if I had cut them myself, even after I had told him they were painted. He thought that I put new counter tops in. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it!! I can't believe I waited so long to try this. Turned out beautifully. My plain white bathroom vanity now looks like granite. It was so easy to do and the clean-up was a breeze. July 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Purchase This product was excellent. It came with a video showing exactly how to use it and was very informative. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wonderful results The Countertop paint kit had easy instructions and it was very easy to create a wonderful transformation of my ugly butcherblock countertop!! Amazing, would suggest this for anyone. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really Solid Product I was really skeptic about this. I was surprised how well it stuck on with the clear coat. I used Rustolem Countertop Transformations and was not impressed. This was a much better product. We use the kitchen alot and I thought it was scuff up bad, but it hasn't it looks great too. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Update of Countertop I was skeptical on how this would look. I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked that there was almost no odor since I live in an apartment. Watch the DVD first before you try it. December 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great Work really good - Needed a new brush for the second coat of top coat June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did it myself and it turned out great!!! The kit was very easy to use. I'm not a great painter or very handy. I had to purchase rubber gloves and painter's tape. I used a disposable aluminum pan from the dollar store. Everything else was included in the kit. Follow the directions and watch the DVD several times. I used the plastic bag method to create the "granite" look. I was able to apply more black in areas I felt I used too much white. I didn't use very much of the gold. I applied the topcoat several times around my high use areas to improve the durability. The hardest part was waiting in between for the drying times. This saved me thousands of dollars and I'm very happy with my results. I love it! March 1, 2016
