Questions & Answers


What type of sealer should I use overtopping with cooler

Asked by Whojimmey September 16, 2020

You should be able to use any concrete sealer that you like.

If I want to tint mortar to be brown and match sandstone brown colored rocks, should I use white ...

Asked by SteveK February 11, 2019

Not sure but what I can tell you is this brown is like a red brick color depending on the ratio of tint to mixture. I used it with a quickcrete cement mix and used a 1/3 of the bottle per 80lb bag.

Can you mix charcoal with the brown to give a swirl look

Asked by Creed October 27, 2018

No, I can’t see how that would be possible or consistent over more than one ore two bags of concrete

What I'm looking for is some gray color of the cement to show also like a swirl affect

Asked by Creed October 27, 2018

QUIKRETE® Liquid Cement Color is intended to be added to the clean mixing water before it is mixed into a dry gray base concrete mix such as QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix. In order to make any type of swirl effect, you would need to mix two different batches of concrete and experiment on ways to swirl them together without the materials mixing together.

Can this be used on existing dried concrete?

Asked by manny September 26, 2018

We did a cinder block retaining wall with a kind of stucco/concrete layer over it. For part of it, we mixed in the coloring with the cement and put on the wall. Later I wanted to change the shade slightly and just painted this liquid cement color on the wall after mixing with water. They both worked and I can't say one way colored the cement any better than the other way so YES you can do that. Just remember if you only mix with water it is really thin and drips easily. But looks fine when smoothed with a brush.

can this be applied to dried mortar?

Asked by Stonestacker July 1, 2018

It’s made to mix in with the water, they do make grout stain that might work on mortar

Asked by Bigfig April 7, 2018

How much does a 3# jar of liquid cement coloring make?

Asked by Jacquelyn July 29, 2017

We are able to get about 12 sq ft. This was 6 cap fulls per bag of quick dry concrete

Asked by mom July 5, 2017

We used 6 capfulls per bag of quick drying concrete. Also we mixed it in a 5 gallon bucket filled about a third of the way. We then poured it into the dry cement. Mix it and add water as needed. We went a little like thick cake batter. A other tip is don't get it to soupy as this affects thed curing time and we had some crumbling on the bricks we made. The 6 caps full produced a nice buff color.

How much is typically used for 80lb. Bag of concrete?

Asked by Brian March 30, 2016

Depends on the color you want. IF you read the bottle, it says a MAXIMUM of two bottles to 60 or 80# of concrete. I used 2 bottles in a 50# bag of Thoroseal and I got colors from brick red all the way to a light brown. Super inconsistent!

I didn't use this for what it was designed for. I used it to add color to paint for a vivarium that will be housing lizards so I needed something non toxic. It was far better then I expected. I will definitely be using this product again.

Reading about this product, it states that you use 1/2 to 1 bottle for 40 to 60 pounds of concrete. I mixed this with Thoroseal (a Portland based water sealer). It took two full bottles to obtain a "Cedar" color with 50 pounds of Thoroseal. I wanted dark brown but this is going to have to do...

Not very happy....
I bought 11 bottles of brown concrete coloring to do a small stepping stone / patio 8'x13'. All the stone being the same color. Here are my complaints. 1. 5 out of 11 bottles were previously opened (seal broken or missing) a couple bottle were not full either by evaporation or product loss. I chose not to return them because I need the stones poured this weed end. My choice. I had to go to both home depos to get what I could. 2. The product was very thick to the point it was very hard to get all the coloring out. It took a couple of washes and a lot of shaking to get most of it. At this point to make my deadline I decided too pour all the coloring in a container then divided the coloring for each bag. which worked ok. Even though shaking the coloring up before I add to each bag,in the mixer, I still can see some of the stones were darker than the others. This product would be ok if one wanted a variation. but trying to make it in a big batch and divided up like I did is not recommended. Nex time I will try using the powder to see if I have better luck.

A little goes a long way!
We purchased this Brown coloring to add to our Quikwall mix when we redid our chimney. See the attached photo for the results. All in, we used about 1.5 bottles for three bags of Quikwall. We didn't need to go darker for the hue we were looking for.

Followed instructions to the letter. Poured concrete into forms and was dark brown just as described. As it dried, it is now the pinkish shade of vomit. I am thoroughly disgusted as we purchased 36 bottles of this and basically ruined our entire new patio and about $1,000 worth of color and cement. And it’s too late now!!!
