Stenciling Concrete Surfaces
Featured Product: Cement Color
- Prepare the concrete surface by pressure washing.
- It is important that the surface is clean and free of dirt and build up.
- Prepare the spray gun assembly in advance of any stenciling project. (View our spray gun assembly instructional video).
- Once the concrete surface has been thoroughly cleaned and has had adequate time to dry the stencil can be placed on the surface in the desired design. Secure the stencil by taping the edges in place.
- Begin the mixing process by adding the water requirements for the Sakrete Flo-Coat Concrete Resurfacer into a 5-gallon bucket.
- Add the selected cement color additive to the water and briefly mix the water and color additive together using a drill.
- Add in the Flo-Coat Resurfacer and mix for several minutes using the drill. The mix should be flowable and free of lumps.
- Pour the colored Flo-Coat Resurfacer into the hopper of the spray gun assembly.
- Begin spraying the stenciled area, using cardboard to catch any overspray that occurs. Spray in circular patterns. Don’t try and cover the area all at one time. Heavy spraying can result in product running under the stencil.
- Once the stenciled area has been adequately sprayed, remove the stencil from the area. DO NOT allow the Flo-Coat Recurfacer to dry with the stencil in place.
- Allow the area adequate drying time. Do not allow foot traffic for 24 hours after application or vehicle traffic for 72 hours.
- To ensure long-lasting color, the surface should be sealed 24 hours after application.
For additional spray application instructions, please refer to the Flo-Coat Concrete Resurfacer product data sheet.

Calculated results will reflect how many bags are needed for Block and Brick.
Enter the number of bricks (8" x 2" x 4") or blocks (8" x 8" x16") in the box below that you plan to use for your project. The calculator will then tell you the number of bags you need based on the different size of bags we carry.
This calculator is based on a 3/8" mortar joint. All yields are approximate and do not include an allowance for waste, uneven subgrade or any other variations from the joint size and brick and block sizes noted above.
Results will change if form of measurement is updated.
