I have a black slate fireplace surround and I've drop acetone on the
slate which removed a portion of the black finish to show the true gray
color. I don't believe the slate is painted, but stained in some way.
Does anyone know of a slate staining product I could apply to my slate
surround so it has a nice new black finish?
I've installed slate in my house. Applying slate sealer tends to
darken the slate slightly. I suggest you clean your slate with solvent
to bring it all to a uniform colour and seal it with slate sealer.
Slate suppliers usually recommend that you do that periodically anyway
to keep the slate looking new.
Can I get a rough ratio for the linsees oil and mineral spirits? Also,
do you think I shoudl apply more linseed oil to the "dry spot" created
by the acetone to help saturate the slate evenly? Maybe that is just
being overly cautious.
