Oh look we have bunch of these thing so now I can go to the fun part and that is to add the colors. Okay so what we are going to do is prepare ourselves for working with some very dark colors and then what I want you to do will there are several ways with match to do this and you can buy different concretes and stains to powders what I’m going to use is the same with liquid concrete color that we use for we made the tiles and buff colors make it you know mix in buff looking and not so great let me show this one and then we compare to the buff color and you can see the different and it’s plain white I did that a little bit okay. So what I did was actually darker color okay we have buff to the end to the concrete and that is just to add is just like under tone and then I bought terracotta and then I’m going to use this as primary color because I want the deep darn deep red and let’s go to it. Okay, so I can take color and dipping in here and scrape it off a little bit then I’m kind to dip it in the water so it just got a lot of moisture when I end then show it around to the tile. Okay and you can use even a little more water on that and just make sure get everywhere. And then you are going to wipe it off especially in the middle, okay very fun. Okay, then let’s try while this are we going to stop believe okay. So still some we are just going to take the terracotta color and you just really put it in on the tile okay and then you are going to want to— thank you rag and simply put that to that and it go and gets a little dry you want more color taken off and you use the dense sponge and I clean part of your rag okay then you gets some real high contrast going on. You can even come back here and let’s just say wanted the little bit darker on edges that you know a little more contrast then we can just come back in and see just kind of wiping at here. Okay see, you can just kind of brush from the edges a little bit and this is really nothing too tricky about this and it’s actually quite easy. And you end up with the really lovely tile. Okay so before I assemble I contrast here, now I’m going to show you what happens and we do this color on the tile that is just plain concrete okay. Here we go got it all painted, now you can really see let me show that to you. Okay so here you go we’ve got the two tiles and it’s so clear you can see the one that you have the break of the concrete and we made without of being tented you know. Its a little bluer so it’s going to cool to cast to it and then the one where did the adobe color underneath look it’s got a warmer coat. So, you cut and we put underneath and does have a big different on the final outcome. And my behalf which start by doing you know one and testing up the color and make me sure that you’re happy, before you go ahead into the thing. Alright so I’m going to keep going here. Okay, finally finish, oh this is great now all I have to do is put on some filler and that is just as easy as taking another brush. Okay we can find this filler and you can find some another for this just checking out even a brush it on and you see that, and then will be ready for installation.
