Answers

Yes, the more you add the darker it will get. I find that using it with plaster the more I add the weaker the plaster becomes so I add a little sand which seems to help. But in grout there should be no problem, unless you add way too much.

Is this used with stamping concrete?

Asked by Frankers April 17, 2020

Answers

No, this is an additive intended to be used in masonry mixes prior to being poured to alter the color. However, I purchased it to mix in with my concrete sealer as my contractor did not order the concrete for my stamped project dark enough and the casting product he used got mostly brushed off by him prior to him sealing it. So when it was time to reseal the sidewalk I was able to darken the sidewalk then by mixing this additive into the clear sealer. So far its holding up really great. I feel like this product might be too pigmented (too intense) to be used as the casting powder color release. Its cheap enough though if you have time and are a DIY'er pick it up and try it out

That I do not know, I would think it might work if it will saturate into the band. I would try it on a small part first. The mix itself would work with the water.

I used this in my clear concrete sealer to darken the overall look of my sidewalk. It worked perfectly and is holding up great in the sealer.

Can you please answer question about how many sq ft will 1 lb cover?

Asked by Jeff April 27, 2019

Answers

It says on the container use one pound with 94 pounds of concrete/mortar, etc. Says if you use one pound with 60 lbs of concrete it will be darker. The less concrete you use the darker the finish product.

can this product be mixed with dry venetian plaster?

Asked by jh February 17, 2019

Answers

I bet it can be used in plaster quite successfully. Can't see why it couldn't be a successful pigment to darken plaster.

Not as advertised
I received my order of cement color today and was disappointed to see that it arrived as just a pouch of powder instead of arriving in the shown, small plastic jug. As someone who will be using this product in small batches, the plastic jug with lid was desired. It will take extra caution and the purchase of an additional container to avoid the likelyhood that the powder gets spilled all over the ground once opened.

I love using this product in my mixed-media mosaic projects to color the super-stickey super-white Glass Tile thin-set mortar also obtained at Home Depot. It's an intense color powder that mixes easily with the dry mortar. Just a level teaspoon shaken up in with a pound of Glass Tile in a plastic container gives me perfect color and adhesion as a background for my artwork without the drippey mess of liquid color I've used previously. (Grout colorant doesn't work with thin-set mortar.)

You do need a lot of this pigment to change the grout color to black. If you have a large area to do, you're going to need more than this jar.
