My husband’s face was classic when he came upstairs to this look! I reassured him it would look different at the end and waited overnight for it to dry. Step 2 was to paint on the mineral layers.There are 3 different minerals in this kit, we poured them into paper plates and applied them ONE layer at a time. It says the step numbers right on the can so it’s super hard to mess up. Do a small section and then grab the next color and do over that section. We applied each color lightly as recommended, it made it easier to go back and add color as we wanted at the end. After allowing the counter to dry again over night my husband sanded them down smooth with a 600 grit sandpaper. Step 3 – We applied the top-coat, allowed it to dry and then sanded and repainted another layer of top coat. We scored the tape with a knife, peeled the tape off and voila, we have beautiful new kitchen counters which look like granite. We have to let them cure properly for 2 weeks before heavy use but they’re so much better than before! Our kitchen looks fabulous, thank you Giani Granite for your fabulous product! I’d recommend this to everyone, how could I not with my kitchen looking like this? You can find Giani Granite on Facebook as well or see more photos on their online gallery.
