Tip: Dab the entire counter space with one color before moving onto the next color, don't smear it or press too hard. Also, don't get discouraged if you dab too hard or something, because this paint is very forgiving. At one point, I was so pissed I had to stop the job for a half a day. I decided to continue and somehow pulled it off. The key is to "keep on layering," and the color will eventually turn out the way you intended.
Also, you're not going to see the actual beauty of your new tops UNTIL the top coat is put on. That's the key to making your new tops look, feel and shine like real granite. It's very important to remember this so as to not get unmotivated. I honestly feel as if my counters are new and I simply restored them versus just putting a band-aid on them. They're so clean and the surface is just awesome. Already got a ton of compliments. Also, did I make any mistakes? Yes. Has anyone else noticed? No. If anyone is looking that closely then I probably wouldn't invite them into my home anyway. The texture of this paint job tricks your eyes into not seeing any imperfections.
-I used a foam roller pad to roll on the primer. A fuzzy pad tends to leave roller marks.
-Instead of the included round sea sponge, I bought a cylindrical sea sponge, poked a hole through the middle, attached it to a mini roller frame, and used it to roll on the mineral paints. I found this gave me more even coverage and a more random pattern, and avoided those round sponge impressions.
-Instead of dipping my sea sponge into the paint, I brushed it onto the sponge sparingly with a paintbrush. Too much paint on the sponge will make it look very fake and is hard to correct once it's on your counter. But it's easy to add more if you need to.
-I took my project a step further and added gold leaf flakes and brown glitter, as real granite often has a sparkle to it. After I had finished painting, I sprinkled the gold flakes sparingly and randomly over the counter while the paint was still wet, then mixed some ultra-fine glitter into the top coat, and rolled it on as directed after the paint had dried. I think it made my countertop look even more like authentic granite.
I think the end result looks amazing, and even up close, it's hard to tell the counters were painted. You definitely need to take your time though, and also be careful not to overwork the mineral paints, or you'll end up with a smeary mess. Practicing a few times first definitely helped me.
I'm not a big fan of the top coat glaze that comes with the kit. We tested it out on some of the back splash and it looked so-so. However, I saw a review on amazon where they substituted the included top coat with an epoxy/resin glaze.
LET ME BE CLEAR - it makes a 10X improvement! We have had people over our house and immediately think we got granite countertops. The glaze is very thick and makes the colors more vibrant and also adds a little bit of magnification that increases the granite effect. There are some cautions though about using the epoxy/resin:
It messy - be prepared to tape everything off as the resin will inevitably fall off the edges of your counters.
It only works on level surfaces - If your countertop has a "lip" on the edge, the epoxy will not cover it as it's self leveling. I had to use a sander and wood planer to shave off our countertop lip for the epoxy to settle correctly. Also, you will not get a nice coating on the side edges or back splash (it will develop runs). I recommend using Giani's top coat for any vertical surfaces and FAMOWOOD epoxy/resin glaze for the top.
You can royally screw up your countertops, so be prepared to take risks. However, I think this is totally worth it. Once you lay this down, it's extremely thick and cannot be sanded off easily. You really do need a chisel and sander to get back down to your original countertops. With a 15-20 minute cure time, you really need to make sure you work quickly and that you have full coverage. The instructions recommend a squeegee or trowel, but i found the best thing to do is use your two hands with nitrile or latex gloves. This allows you to feel the areas that have not gotten coverage.
One thing that I found is when the glaze is drying, sometimes it will pull away from some spots and you will have areas that are like little holes. Just make sure you don't skimp on using the glaze and you should be fine.
You'll also need another specialized tool such as a butane lighter or heat gun as you need this to remove bubbles after you have laid the glaze coat.
If you have the will and want amazing results, try the epoxy glaze, you won't regret it. I think my pictures are testament to this.
