Similarly, can you color concrete after its poured?
Another option for coloring concrete is to apply a color hardener to the top layer of concrete after it has been poured. While a color hardener can produce more vibrant colors than adding colorant to the mix, any dings or edges in the finished slab will show, since the color is only on the surface of the concrete.

Can you stain broomed concrete?
Most exterior concrete patios, walk ways and driveways can be stained regardless of age. Exterior concrete in most cases are textured (broom finish, etc), and as a result acid stain can look a little differently than staining interior concrete which is generally smooth and texture-free.
