An Acid Staining Video is one of the best tools for learning what these stains can do to enhance concrete. You can also see some of the methods for applying stain to get the beautiful results.
This first video is simply a slide show that I made to show off what acid stains can do. It can also give you some ideas on what to do with your concrete. Because the options with stains are unlimited, deciding how to make the concrete look can be the most difficult part of the project.
This video that I made shows acid staining and faux finishing techniques with acrylic stains. Not only does faux finishing create a beautiful finish, but it also helps hide imperfections in the concrete that acid staining highlights. Faux finish techniques can also be used to fix a poor acid stained floor.
I chose this video because it shows the method of preparation and application that most of us contractors use. You'll see that there's nothing too difficult about it. This is the best method, in my opinion, for staining large floors such as basement floors or garage floors.
This acid staining video shows a somewhat different method. Notice the attention to detail in prep work, especially with cracks. This is especially beneficial for smaller floors, such as kitchens and dining rooms, that are more subject to judgement by others. You'll also notice a different method of application, as the stain is poured on the floor rather than sprayed.
