Compass Medallion 4′ Diameter (MD7401)

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.
