    Default Painting Pavers

    Hi there.
    I have here a small area (about 10x10 pavers) which the colour does not match with the surroundings.
    I found this product:

    https://www.bunnings.com.au/berger-jet-dry-4l-heavy-duty-deep-charcoal-paving-paint_p1410007
    or this one:
    https://www.bunnings.com.au/white-kn...-pave_p1540609


    Apart from the etching and normal painting procedure, have you ever seen a paver like this painted?


    Thanks.

    I've used Ultra Pave here, just washed them with water and a stiff broom and painted them with a brush.

    I've had good results on bigger areas using a roller, so either way will work.

    It looks really good! Thanks for sharing the photos.

    Did you find the paint is slippery? I found they sell as well some sort of anti-slip powder to mix with the paint, but not sure if that is really required.

    Cheers.

    The paint is actually pretty watery but covers well also.

    Being watery, it just sorta colours the pavers with very little paint (thickness), therefore they are basically no more slippery than before.

    The anti slip additive is needed more on smooth even surfaces like steel trowelled concrete, the rough surface of the pavers should be fine without it.
    Test slipperiness after one coat and if it's slippery add anti slip to second coat, but I don't think you'll need it.
    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
