Making a Tie-Dyed Concrete Countertop

As a fun follow-up to my Achieving Color Consistency series, I thought I’d post some photos of a crazy “tie-dyed” concrete table I made. You could use this technique with a concrete countertop and with any combination of colors.

The process was actually quite simple. I just used extra-bright synthetic pigments, some liquid and some powder, and mixed very small batches.

Once I had the colors ready, I applied them in a pattern to match a photograph.

Then I poured bright white concrete over the whole thing.

The colors got a little smeared in the finished table, but I think it looks far-out and groovy, man!
