How to Pick Stamped Concrete Colors
When it comes to stamped concrete colors, it's often best to choose hues that will blend in with other architectural elements of the home or natural surroundings. For outdoor surfaces like patios and walkways, earth tones usually work well.
Some of the most popular choices are:
Gray stamped concrete - Slate, Smoke, and Charcoal base colors accented with Light, Medium, Dark Gray, Smokey Beige antique release colors
Tan stamped concrete - Sandstone, Desert Tan, Rosemary and Ginger base colors accented with Walnut, Autumn Brown, Pecos Sand, Desert Tan and Smokey Beige
Achieving subtle tonal variations, or an “antiquing” effect, can be done by applying one or more accent colors of hardener or using acid stains or tinted release agents. If you’re looking for a bolder, more vivid color scheme, try layering dyes or water-based stains instead which have a broader array of colors to choose from.
The base color shows through about 80% of the slab. The Antique Release that shows in the grout lines and highlights is 20%.
