Step-by-Step Stamping Process
Workers assemble forms prior to slab placement

Working the dry-powder color hardener into the surface of the slab

Unwashed, imprinted concrete with the release agent still on it's surface

Applying a release agent to the surface of the slab. This will ease removal of imprinting stamps

The finished product - a colored slab that resembles various materials, not one of them being concrete. The release agent has been washed off at this stage
