Color resurfaced concrete?

On concrete that is resurfaced (e.g., Sakcrete Resurfacer), is there a way to color? Reds are fine. Will it absorb color or stain?

Suobs - I moved your question into it's own thread, you'll get more visibility that way than tacking on to a three year old thread

You can mix a dye directly into the resurfacer before you are apply it.

If you have already applied the resurfacer, then you can stain it with a semi-transparent concrete stain. I love the way cement moves color around and gives it a personality. Be sure to let the resurfacer "cure" before applying anything to the surface. Read the package label to find out the conditions.

You may also want to get a couple of different colors of stain and experiment a little to get kind of an "old world" look.

Have fun!

I your trying to paint it heres a great product

Just for concrete in general if you can paint it i dont know what your project is but porter paint's glyptex is great for concrete and masonary. I just painted a John Deere service garage in Asheville NC with it. The service bays were greasy grimy etc. the color was white believe it or not but it covered and stuck like nothing ive seen puts a nice thick hard enamel finish on it highly recommended

It's an exterior walkway. My main concern is durability but of course it needs to look good.
