Stenciling concrete
 
I want to stencil my patio to look like stone. I've seen it done on YouTube and looks easy enough but I do t know where to begin. Does anyone k ow the steps, what the best products are, and everything I'll need? I would like to tint the base layer because that'll be my "grout" color. Can anyone help mr out? Thanks

Didn't Youtube tell you how to do it? You might browse at concretenetwork.com for starters.

It told me how to do it but I'm not sure of what to buy.

gee, it looks easy on tv & u-tube,,, this is our work & there's nothing i can recommend to you as the materials're usually only avail to licensed artisans,,, historically, that's because the uninitiated, ignorant, & stupid make a mess then expect the supplier to bail them out,,, you can find some of the right stuff at a const supply house that will work IF you prep & apply it correctly ! ! !

having been part of 1 of those tv shows for diy channel, 1/2 hr show took 2 days,,, in face, stenciling has a different definition to us in the craft - good luck !
