Giani Granite Paint For Countertops and we decided to give it a try We had to go to Oklahoma City to buy it. Total cost on all our supplies sand paper tape cleaning stuff etc including the drive up to OKC was around $280.00. We got the Sicilian Sand kit. I read up on it for days and watched videos on You Tube (I linked to the giani videos)I did practice items- tissue boxes and paper... well the prep was hard the whole project is time consuming because of sanding and drying time The basics are in the pictures below. I will say getting your pattern or non pattern is difficult on a large flat surface. I actually added craft paint & the copper in my counters is actually metallic copper craft paint by plaid (said on the website or the paper work some people have done that added craft paint)
So the biggest problem we had was with the sealer coat that giani provides- for days after it dried it would bubble up when it got wet- all the way down the layers... can't have that on a working kitchen counter... don't know if they changed up that formula or addressed it we never contacted them about it we just went out and got marine grade verathane and did 3 coats of that. Now I would only do 2 if I were to do it again but dh was heavily involved at this point and well sometimes u gotta pick your battles 3 coats won out- it has yellowed a bit but it gives it a warmth.
My white sink we bought from a friend for 40$ they decided against putting it in their house.. their loss imho
