Q: How do I install the Translucent Color Enhancer?
A: With virtually any tool you want depending on the desired effect. Typically, a pump sprayer or NewLook Applicator Brush is used to restore exposed aggregate or antique stamped concrete.
Q: How do I create a faux finish with the Enhancers?
A: First, consider whether the Enhancer is the right product for your faux finish project. SmartColor is most commonly used for faux finishing. Remember, faux finishing is a skill developed with practice. Fortunately, NewLook's non-reactive stains give you greater color control, which allows you to duplicate the effects of acid stain, marble or any other design. For best results use an HVLP or airless sprayer to mist on the Enhancers. Download our video tutorials for more information.
Q: Are NewLook's Concrete Color Stains permanent?
A: Seriously? C'mon, nothing you put on concrete is absolutely permanent. Sealers, stained concrete, micro-toppings --- they all need to be maintained. Even concrete itself breaks down over time and needs to be cleaned or even replaced! After all, you wouldn't buy a brand new car and never wash it, right? Likewise, decorative concrete stains must also be maintained because of wear and tear. However, NewLook's Translucent Color Enhancer has a compelling value proposition; it's an integral part of a comprehensive system of decorative concrete maintenance solutions that allow you to maintain the image of your concrete. Sealing NewLook concrete stains with SmartSeal will indeed extend the life of the Translucent Color Enhancer.
*Coverage rates will vary and are based on surface porosity, concrete texture, temperature, and method of application. The Translucent Color Enhancer can be applied with virtually any tool, including the NewLook Applicator Brush, depending on intended effect. Contact your local supplier for product pricing and availability.

The Translucent Color Enhancer is not a solid or opaque stain. It's translucent, meaning you can see through it. This is why the Enhancer is used to restore or revitalize exposed aggregate! These images (below) merely simulate how the translucent Enhancer tints exposed aggregate with a new hue and allows the aggregate to show through the tint. Do not use a screen image to select colors.
