Painting concrete patio

I have just finished water blasting my concrete patio. I now have spots of different colors and some bare concrete. I am planning on priming before I paint. So is there any more prep I need to do and what primer and paint should I use? The patio is covered but does get wet when it rains.

What primer to use depends on the finish paint being used. Many porch and deck enamels specify using the finish paint [thinned 10%] for the primer.

It can be difficult to get a lasting job on concrete slabs. Any moisture that comes up thru the slab is apt to peel the paint
