Allow new masonry to dry for 14 to 28 days under normal weather conditions before painting. Surface to be painted should be clean and dry, free from oil, grease, dust, dirt, contaminants, and all loose grit and mortar. Treat new masonry with a solution of 1 part Boysen® Masonry Neutralizer #44 diluted in 16 parts water, applying liberally by brush. Let dry overnight before rinsing with water to remove white crystals that form on the surface. Let dry before painting. No need for neutralizers in case Boysen® Acrytex™ Primer #1705 is used as primer.


Apply Boysen® Permacoat™ Flat Latex #701 (100% acrylic, water-based) or Boysen® Acrytex™ Primer #1705 (solvent-based acrylic, water-tight) as primer for concrete.

After primer application, apply Boysen® DECORe™ Undercoat #4605 by brush or roller and fully cover the surface. Let dry.

Note : The design can only be achieved using Boysen® DECORe™ Undercoat.

After choosing the desired color, mix Boysen® DECORe™ Toner into Boysen® DECORe™ Base #4610. A color can be applied in different tones by varying amount of toner used, either Full, One-half, One-Fourth, or any other proportion depending on desired shade. Stir until uniform consistency is achieved. DO NOT THIN MIXTURE WITH WATER OR ANY SOLVENT.

Using a 3” Diamond (China) Boysen® DECORe™ brush, apply from top corner, working with short crisscrossing strokes. If a more uniform pattern is desired, stroke with a clean brush while paint is still wet.

Note: The design may not be achieved if a different paint brush is used.

Allow 8 to 10 minutes after applying Boysen® DECORe™ before lightly combing using the plastic scraper again in long crisscrossing strokes, with the scraper inclined and close to the surface.
