Rockview Interior Floors
The staining for the floors and stairs involved various blending of 3- acid stains all from Scoffield namely, Fern Green, Antique Amber, Padre Brown. The way in which we wanted these colors radiate started with the small round exposed areas and the veining. For these TRC used the Padre Brown directly in the center and then let the color slowly radiate to the perimeters of where the exposed concrete met the hard troweled or unexposed areas. A really cool effect took place when Tom Ralston Concrete artisans did that and much of the perimeter had this dark shadow line that resulted from the pooling of the acid in the exposed areas and had the effect of a highlight of color around the areas that one could say resembled eye liner. I happened to be in Alabama a while back and saw the same effect when the sun was blocked by a dark cloud and the entire perimeter of the cloud had this bright glow around every edge of the random perimeter…..the pooling of the acid stain produced the same effect.
