The freshly poured concrete
contained an integral yellow
colorant. This first step helped
give color to the white portland
cement. As the concrete crew
smooths it out we follow them
standing on two by fours within a
20 minute time frame and dust the
areas with other colors of powder
pigment to create the look of multi
colored granite. Flour sifters from
the kitchen work great.

other colors of powdered pigment
with (rented) forms for smaller
Days later the floors will be scored
with a diamond pattern to
resemble large slabs of granite.
The walls were sponged with
coordinating floor colors.
