Magic of Not Real Granite Counter top
Magic of Not Real Granite Counter top
TO ALL MY HGTV-RATE MY SPACE FRIENDS WHO ASKED: This technically is easy to do. The hardest part is the WAITING for drying times and curing. Plan on a week of non use of the counter! Get lots of rubber gloves! Clean counters, then lightly sand. Then wipe counters down again to get all the sanding dust off. Choose a light base paint, then a medium paint. You want the two shades to be within the same value but not a lot of contrast. It all depends on what "color" of granite look you are going for. Like the colors I used in the picture was a medium taupe and a tan color. For my two colors I used Rustoleum Counter Top paint. But you can actually use any alkyd-oil based paint low sheen that you want. You will also need a little tiny can of a very dark color- oil based alkyd paint. This will be the grain of the granite and the last step. You can use black or a chocolate espresso brown. And for protecting counter top you will need to get a small can of verathane. I didn't use a high gloss on this project. High gloss is great for kitchen counter tops though. Keep in mind that this will give a golden color to the counter top. It doesn't dry completely clear. 1. Tape everything off you don't want painted. 2. With the light color base paint, use (good quality feathered end) brush to cut in, foam roller to paint large areas. Put enough paint on roller to let roller do the work for you. Don't push down on the roller. It will leave roller marks anyway but it gets covered up with the sponging. 3. Wait an hour then roll on the second coat of base color. If you miss the 1 hour window you have to wait 24 hours to do the next coat. Keep this in mind with each stage. If you don't follow this formula the paint will start bubbling up. 4. Wait another hour then move on to this next step. Personally, I waited 24 hours to go to this step. Using a small piece of SEA sponge-like smaller than the palm of your hand, sponge on the medium color dabbing on paint. Move your hand around turning it right and left so as not to make the same sponge marks every where. Sometimes when you dip your sponge in the paint you need to blot it on a paper towel a little. A little side note: When you first start sponging on the second color your first thought might be "Oh man this looks like yuck!" Mostly it is because the first dabs of darker paint is in such contrast with the other. But keep at it, it starts blending and coming together. Note: to sponge in those pesky corners and where counter top meets back splash, I used a very small piece of paper towels folded up and scrunched up and used that to get right up in the corner and creases. Also a Q-tip. Or a little tiny tiny piece of sponge then dab a little with a dry sponge to blend the spots. When you use a little tiny sponge and try to dab on paint it goes on too heavy, so the dry one helps blend it better. 5. Stand back every once in awhile to see how it's filling in and sponge more where you think it needs more. I also kept a paper plate with some of the base paint in it because to really give it the granite look finish you need to blend some of both colors in places. Once I was done completely sponging the medium color I then went back and dipped in the light and the medium, blotted it then went back to counter and filled in some areas to get it so that it didn't have such defining lines from the sponging. 6. The above sounds more complicated than it is. LOL Really, you get the hang of it as you go along. 7. Wait an hour then using a smaller sponge, start sponging on the black. Dab lightly twisting and turning your hand varying the angle etc as you dab. And sponge sparingly - spaced out all over the counter. It's better to start off with the black spaced way out then go back and fill in some areas where it's to far apart. If you find you added to much of the "grain" just re-sponge mixing your two base colors on the sponge you were using for the base colors then dabbing again in those areas that have too much black. This helps lift off some of the black and blend it into the counter more. 8. I waited 24 hours then lightly sanded the counter top. Then I wiped it down to get all the sanding dust off. Now you can add your verethane clear coat. This step is important because it is what will really protect the counter from scratches etc. I then waited another 24 hours, lightly sanded again, then put on a second coat of verethane. You then need to wait at least THREE days to let it all cure before trying to use the counter or set anything on it. The counter is used by all members of the family including a 10 year old. So far so good! No problems with counter. :-) See, now wasn't that easy? LOL P.S. I didn't do anything different to the cherry cabinets in the pic. I think my flash was just operating differently in the pic on the right. However, I think the new counter top makes it all look different.

Hello everyone I was at a friends house and sitting in his kitchen when his Granite Countertop caught my eye , I couldn't believe it, I never knew granite was so cool looking, there was so much going on deep within the granite I couldn't take my eyes off it, looking deep down into all the designs I was transfixed, it even had a pinkish tint to it,riveted to the spot, he saw me looking and asked what in the world are you doing? I said this is amazing, look at that, I want to try and paint this, then he just said o man your crazy come on lets go, when I got home later I couldn't get my mind off that granite top, so I tried to paint what I saw in a large painting 24 by 48 inches on half inch wood ,I needed a hard surface , zoom up on the picture and you can see the detail better,I'm pretty happy with it, but I can see I have a way to go when it comes to painting granite it could take a lifetime, cheers, steve
