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?

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.good luck,ken.

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