Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reddog This powder works better than the liquid!
I started out using the liquid red color for my cement. The liquid was difficult to mix a consistent color from bag to bag.
This Sakrete product comes as a powder. It was much easier to measure and produced a consistent color through about 20 bags of cement. The powder is much better.

I can't find the color of grout I need, so I use this cement color to mix with the grout. It s easy to use, but it's not easy to clean.

Fairly economical option for small projects. 1 box gives you about 2 cups of color to work with. The instructions recommend 1 box per 80 lbs of concrete as a starting point for adding color. I used 1/4 cup with a 25 lb mix and it yielded a brick reddish color. Using less will give you a lighter color and stretch the product further. Adding more cement color may give you a darker shade, but another option to try would be mixing the red with the black or charcoal powder cement color in solution and add that to your cement mix. I would recommend a test project making smaller blocks or even garden stepping stones with varying amounts of the cement color (but exact same concrete mix you'll be using for your final project) to determine what shade you like. From there it would be easy to determine how much color you'll need for the final project. I used an outdoor acrylic sealer for a garden step stone, and a non-toxic sealer (rhymes with Bee wax) for a concrete bowl I made to be used indoors. I don't know if that's necessary. I just wanted a little gloss and added protection for the pieces I made. Fun to experiment, and I still have a lot left. This is very fine powdery stuff and there is a small amount on the inside and outside of packaging so I used mask and gloves.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarkMason Produced a beautiful color for my concrete counter top
I used this product to color my concrete counter top. My counter top was 5' x 3'. I only colored enough material to pack the first 1" of the counter top (pouring it upside down). Then I filled the back with uncolored, regular Portland gray concrete. That saved me some money and time. I put 2 boxes in one bag of Quikrete Maximizer to get the color I wanted. I turned out really nice. My wife loves it.
