Trouble With Granite Look Counters

I put the clear coat on already and I didn't put enough color on the counter top and now it doesn't match my bar. I need more color, what should I do? Can I put color right on my Envirotex and then clear coat it again? What a mess.

I tried to do the granite look counter tops and put the clear coat down first. Do I have to sand and do it all over again? Can I still put paint on the clear coat?

Tasha hon, you should put the clear coat on last. Since you have already put it down you will have to sand it all off. Do you have an electric sander?

After you have sanded, put down a product as a primer. Bin by Zinsser is a good gone. Then do your granite look. Then seal it with the sealer. I don't know if you know this, but it is best to use water based sealer because it does not yellow. If you use the oil based, it will yellow and ruin the look of your granite. Use a gloss since you are going for the look of granite. Hope this helps. (08/22/2008)
