  • To avoid creating a surface that will look wet or over finished, do not glaze over True Tint Stone™.
  • Apply over clean, water resistant surfaces only.
  • Thoroughly clean the work surface. Tint SetCoat® Clear or SetCoat® to a grout or mortar color (add 3 oz. FauxCrème Color™ Van Dyke Brown to 1 quart SetCoat® Tinting Base). Apply 2 coats of this mixture to the work surface. Letting the first coat dry a minimum of 4 hours before applying the second coat. Let the second coat dry a minimum of 24 hours.
  • Tape off an irregular pattern over the mortar color, making sure to simulate uneven laid/stacked stone.
  • To create a deep stone color, mix True Tint Stone™ with FauxCrème Color™. Do not exceed 3 oz. of colorant per quart. The product will take the color exceptionally well without fading to a pastel.
  • Apply a 1/8” layer of True Tint Stone™ over the entire taped area using a trowel. After the first layer has dried, build up additional 1/8” layers in specific areas for a more dimensional look. Different colors can also be layered to create rock-like formations such as shale, slate, mudstone, gneiss or other variegated stone looks.
  • If desired, stipple the material with a plastic bag, sponge or trowel. Wait approximately 15 – 30 minutes until the material firms up and then level off the high peaks using a trowel. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  • Remove the tape after the finish has dried. Sanding is optional at this point.
  • In kitchens, bathrooms, outdoor applications and commercial areas where extra protection or waterproofing is required, top coat TrueTint Stone™ with AquaThane™ or C-500 Urethane™.
