I admit it, I love the metallics and Baltz and Sons seems to love them too. Some of my all time favorite jobs were created with metallic coloring systems. Metallic coloring is available in epoxies and we stock Cohills in several different colors. With any job, creating a unique and natural appearance is key.
This stamped concrete patio was created by John’s Cement out of Milford, Michigan. John’s website address is www.johnscement.com. The 4′ diameter Compass Rose Medallion (MD7401) was used along with the New England Ashlar Slate concrete stamps (AS100-P). This project could be colored with Adobe Beige Color Hardener (CH-602) and Antique Release Saddle Soap (AR-632). The different colors in the Compass and on the Ashlar stones can be achieved using acid stain or water-based coloring such as Ez-Accent (Cimarron, Mission Brown, Sandstone and Pinto) as well as Ez-Tique in Saddle Soap. All of our Ez-Tique, Color Hardener and Antique Release products are available in the same colors. A separate color chart is available for the Ez-Accent. (I provided a link below for the color charts.) A good rule to remember, Ez-Accent must be applied before the Ez-Tique. It will not hold if applied on top of the Ez-Tique. Don’t hold back on trying the water-based colors to jazz up your jobs. You will be pleasantly surprised at how easy and quickly they are applied as well as the fabulous presentation they help to create. Continue reading
This pool deck was done by Baltz and Sons out of Memphis, TN (http://baltz-concrete.com). Our popular concrete stamp Arizona Flagstone (RS300) pattern was used and each stone was colored uniquely with acid stain. Taking the time to ensure that the stones look different sets this job apart. This look can be achieved by selecting a color hardener such as Arizona Buff, an antique release such as Mission Beige and then using acid stain or water based stains such as Ez-Accent and Ez-Tique to add that special touch to the stones.
