Use Brillo pads
Clean the entire area two times with Brillo, wiping up with water in between and at the end.
Tape off edges
Stir black primer
Slowly roll primer onto counter
Don't forget to prime the edges!
With the first step of color, start sponging lightly
Sponge with other remaining colors in the kit (depends on kit for colors). I added an additional brown (acrylic paint) which went on well.
I painted in some "veining" in some areas.
Lightly sand any rough spots with 600 grit paper. Wipe up with damp cloth after.
Roll in clear coat
We rolled two coats
Ready for backsplash!
