Make Concrete Look Like Granite

So Kerry said our friends Kim and John wanted to know if I know how to make concrete look like granite. I immediately thought "Yeah! I can do that!" Then I said "Uh... Yeah. Gimme a day or two and I can know how to do that."

So for the past couple of weeks, ideas involving splatter brushes and colored stone and polyurethane basecoats and topcoats have been swirling around in my head. Just now, I found this article at ehow.com that shows how to do it all with paint and funny brushes. I still think my idea of polyurethane basecoat (or two), thick polyurethane coat with crushed red and black stone splooshed into it, polyurethan topcoat is a good one, but probably way more expensive than just paint. Click the photo below for the article.


  1. hmmm. I don't think that the picture looks like granite. I guess that I would have to see it live, or see a better photo.

  2. Agreed. It certainly is granite-colored, and might pass for a digital granite texture, but it's not going to fool anyone.
