Thanks Paul. I've never done any concrete work where I knew 100% what it was going to look like when I got through. This time though I was very careful and did several different variations of straw and acid stains as samples. Everyone was delighted with the results because it looked like the sample they picked.

I actually cast the pieces at my house and did the acid stain after they were installed on the cabinets. This sealer runs almost $5.00 a s.f. for just materials and it's not the easiest thing to use.

wow that looks awesome !! Did you have to do any grinding or polishing whatsoever ? :)

Ryan,

Lots of polishing from 100 t0 800 grit. When you do the dry press method and there is pasting to be done there is no getting away from polishing;
