Can this be mixed in with plaster of paris before casting?

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

Answer

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.

Any reason I couldn't mix this into concrete sealer concentrate?

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.

Perkyat55 can you please list which quikrete cement you used love the finish you achieved

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.

Hello Perkyat55 I love the color that you achieved on your countertops can you please detail ratio of liquid cement

Can this be used to color or tint concrete after it has cured, say as an afterthough?

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.

Can this be mixed with Quikrete Concrete & Masonry waterproofing sealer #8800-05?

Produced desired effect in an 'off label project.' Blended with Portland into old school 'paint solution' which, when brushed on salvaged different color cement patio pavers, did result in a uniform color. Just not as dark as expected. But the Portland also was much lighter too. Patio was low budget Liquid Cement Color brought the entire mismatched pavers into a nice uniform light charcoal color. When wet, it is exactly the darker charcoal color desired. Will try sealing with Quickrete High Gloss Concrete Sealer next. Liquid cement color did darken Portland, was easy to use, cost effective for a uniform color. Recommend Quickrete products.

Very consistent color, even between batches. Each half of the top of this firepit was a separate batch and they match very well.

Darkens concrete and mortar and mixes well but you will need more than you think. I used this to slightly darken the concrete I used in a bar top. It works well, easy to mix. Follow instructions!

Not too bad. I'm more of a powder form die kinda guy but couldn't find any in a hurry so had to try it. I premixed with water (about half the amount needed for the batch) then mixed as needed. I used about 2/3 of the bottle for one bag of premixed mortar mix. Turned out great. Kinda dark grayish color. Be sure to mix it extra well or there might be some shade shift in places but even that looked neat. Left over in opened bottle dried out on me but that's understandable.

I used this with quick crete fast setting in a walkmaker mold. The first day it looked great, two days later we had a downpour and the walkway was cement colored. However, I put a little on a brush and painted a few sections. Three storms later those are still black.
