It could but I am not sure how uniform the color would be or how it would effect the texture of the plaster. Powdered tempera paint is a good colorant for plaster of paris
Yes. The more you add the darker it will get. I used half of bottle mixed with half 60lb pree mix mortar for grouting my rock wall and it dryed almost black. I bet if you add a full bolle it will end up very black. Just take a small porion of your batch and dry ir with hair dryer to see if you got the desired color. Add more die if need to. Good luck
QUIKRETE® Liquid Cement Colors are available in 5 colors: Charcoal, Brown, Red, Terra Cotta and Buff.
When concrete cures, it forms calcium carbonate on the surface. This carbonation leaves a white film on the surface, effectively lightening the color of the concrete. To maintain the rich color imparted by QUIKRETE® Liquid Cement Colors, allow the concrete to cure for the first week, then rinse the surface with a mild acid to remove the carbonation. Once clean, seal the concrete properly and the color will remain intense. Note – concrete is naturally dark gray, so the charcoal Cement Color will only darken the gray, as it is intended for regions with light colored aggregates – it will not provide an ebony color.
QUIKRETE® Liquid Cement Colors are iron oxide pigments and surfactants in a water base. If mixed into another aqueous media, the iron oxide pigments will sediment unless continuously mixed at high shear during placement.
I just followed the directions. I think 1 bottle is good for two 60lb. bags of Quickrete. It will come out gray about the shade of gray that a asphalt highway is after about a year use.
Yes. Mixing with Portland into a very thin 'paint' tinted with charcoal color can be painted over existing concrete. Brush mixture on old concrete as if painting does change the color. Have been experimenting doing just that, an 'old school, mason trick to freshen up concrete was to 'paint cement' with very thin Portland mixture. Try mixing Charcoal into a very thinned out with water 'Portland paint.' Try mixing some, let dry as it does lighten.
Never tried it. Maybe if you diluted with water. Do a test patch. Keep in mind a little goes a long way. A table spoon in a 5 gallon bucket of cement mix is a lot.
No, QUIKRETE® Liquid Cement Colors cannot be mixed with QUIKRETE® sealers.
