We needed to give our little courtyard a fast makeover, so tiling or paving were
out of the question. Paving paint is the only way to quickly change our stark
concrete into something much more appealing.
We needed something fast drying, but durable and long lasting.
Step 1: Prepare the surface. For new concrete wait four weeks for the concrete
to cure adequately. For old concrete, clean with Aqua Tread Etch & Clean - a
citric acid solution that removes contaminants from the surface so you’ll get
the best bond with the paint.
Step 2: Cut in around the edges of your paving with a good-quality brush.
Step 3: Roll the paving with a roller sleeve recommended for rough surfaces, and
work from one side to the other, maintaining a “wet edge” of paint as you go.
Don’t roll the paint on too thick, two thinner coats are always better than one
Step 4: Re-coat after 2 hours. Then wait another two hours and it’s party time!
Step 5: Clean up in water, and dispose of wash-up water in the garden where it
can’t run-off into waterways or other property.
Stir paint well, by using your stirrer to lift the solid tints (that settle on
the bottom of the can) up and through the paint.
