I was wondering if anyone had tried this.
I'm wondering how it would mix up in a clear wood stain base.
I like the color green and patina that I can get from mixing concrete stain in a
bit of water and applying to cedar but it would be great if I could just add it
to wood stain clear base.
Nothing the paint store has comes close and they are unsure about long term
Concrete pigments are supposed to be the most permanent pigments of all.
They face caustic cement and UV.
They might be a little course for paint.
I bought a can of exterior stain base so I will give it a try.

A coarse pigment like that won't work in a true "stain", but if it's
actually more of a glaze (a coloured varnish) then it should do. Don't
use too much, or you might find the finish tends to flake.
I don't know what green concrete pigment is made from. It's not as UV
stable as the red or black pigments, but it's probably OK for timber.
Contact the Manufacturer.......... they may not be sure of your method, but
should be able to tackle the long term. Since your suspending it in a
base........ I don't think anything could do it harm, but it may be caustic
or have chemical properties any one is not aware of....
