Concrete Staining and Dye

Deco Gel Acid Stain has been specifically designed for use on vertical applications, such as retaining walls, columns or garden décor, including statuary and cultured rocks.

DCI Concrete Dye is quick-drying, easy-to-apply acetone-based, translucent topical colorant intended for concrete floor or similar applications.

Concrete Pigments can be used to add color to Concrete, Countertops, Overlay, Stucco, Plaster, Mortar, Grout and other cement-based materials. Pigment integrally colors the concrete offering consistent, even tones across the slab.

Deco Gel Acid Stain

The best thing about acid stain is its ability to infuse concrete with rich and deep color tones. Depending on the color and application techniques used, the results can mimic everything from polished marble to natural stone or even stained wood. Something else to remember about concrete stain is that no two projects will look alike! Application, color selection, concrete surface conditions and environmental factors all play important roles in the final outcome.

Deco Gel is perfect for stenciling and borders on acid stained floor or concrete countertop projects. Because the product doesn’t drip or run, Deco Gel gives our customers more application control without sacrificing color or the appearance the acid staining process is known for.

“Your acid stains, both gels and liquids, have enabled me to take my garden art to a new level. I use plain gray concrete as a base, which I pour into handmade silicone rubber molds of my own sculptures. For the lion wall hanging, I simulated weathered copper by combining Direct Colors Avocado and Azure Blue colors. I apply a coat of the [Deco] Gel, let it dry overnight, then scrub some liquid acid stain of the same color into the crust of dried gel to re-moisturize it into a paste. I let that dry overnight, then wash, neutralize and rinse. After that dries, I apply a paste-wax floor polish as a sealant. For the sun and moon pairs, I use Malayan Buff and Azure Blue, sometimes applying yellow india ink later to intensify the sun’s yellow color.”
