Concrete countertop issues
I am currently making my own concrete counter top. The first thing I've done is poured a tester piece (precast) I am now in the acid staining part of my pre project, my question is should I polish then stain or stain then polish?

Stain then polish.

But you can polish first,then use powered colored dye,the dye will penterate the polished top where stain won't on a closed surface.use acetone with will dry on contact.for first time i would use stain then may do a second coat of stain as your polishing might take away some of the stain as you polish your perfect on testing on sample top first:thumbup:.good luck,ken.

we all no alot but can only do a little-----:yes:an:no:
