I was wondering how I can make my own concrete floor stain. So far all the research that I have found says that I have to buy the stain but I would like to try to make my own. Any ideas,advice or reference material appreciated.

Stain is pigment added to a liquid to carry it into the concrete. The stain ingredients depends on how you want the concrete to look when you are finished. Trial and error, or buying it from people who have already been through the trial and error process and can tell you how it will turn out, are all I can recommend.
Concrete is good.

I want to stain/paint 2 interior room floors. The floor is poured concrete slab. How do I do this? Sealer? Primer? Colors? Any brand names? Thanks!
