I’ve see concrete floors that have been painted to look like marble or another stone. Can anyone tell me how to apply the paint to achieve this look and what products to use?

RE: paint concrete to look like marble
If you want it to look like marble tiles, you will first have to score the surface of the concrete with a saw to create the tile pattern.  Then, you can create the marble look that you want by acid staining in different colors.

RE: paint concrete to look like marble
I rather like wooden flooring than stamped concrete as it looks much better than marble of stamped concrete, Moreover concrete flooring also get the problem of getting hot surface in summers and so much cold in winter's. www.woodsmithhardwood.ca/hardwood...
