Where Are the Best Locations to Use Slate-Stamped Concrete?
Decorative stamped concrete is highly durable and performs well in many environmental conditions including extreme temperatures, heavy precipitation, and freeze-thaw cycles. You can install slate-stamped concrete in high-traffic locations and anywhere that is regularly exposed to harsh conditions outside.
Patios, walkways, pathways, and more are all excellent locations for slate-stamped concrete. You can also combine slate-stamped concrete with other concrete patterns and natural stone, for a varied and visually interesting landscape.
How to Stamp Concrete?
Start by applying the release agent to the concrete, which allows the stamp to imprint its texture onto the concrete without sticking to the concrete. When the stamp is removed, the texturized concrete will remain in place.
Release agents come in two different types: powder and liquid. A liquid release agent is broadcast over the concrete with a pump, while a powder agent can be flicked onto the concrete with a dry paintbrush that has been coated in powder and then flicked over the surface of the concrete. For even application, keep the brush below waist level as you flick.
Next, place the stamp onto the concrete and step on it. The stamp should hold your weight without sinking too deeply into the surface. Pick up the stamp and pull it straight up without dragging it across the surface.
Each time you lay the stamp down, place it in a different orientation so the pattern is different in each location. If you use multiple stamps, you can stand on one stamp while placing the next one in front of you, which will allow you to make your way across the concrete.
When the concrete is set the following day, wash off the remaining release powder.
