generous SpreadStone Kit means there is no reason to stress about having adequate supply, and if you still have some product left, you can use it to cover a small table or other surface. SpreadStone is not a faux finish paint product requiring an eye for detail. You simply roll it on. The finished result is far more durable than paint. The entire SpreadStone system is pre-mixed and ready to go with unlimited working time. A roller and brush are the only tools necessary. Daich offers the original SpreadStone Countertop Kit as well as the Mineral Select Kit. The differences lie in their finished appearance and coverage. The Mineral Select Kit is made with a modified blend of stone and mineral ingredients that goes on slightly thicker for interesting visual appeal with natural mineral accents. Coverage rates for the Mineral Select kit run between 30 and 35 sq.ft. To be safe, when planning for your project, base your order on 30 sq.ft. to ensure you have enough product. The original SpreadStone Countertop Kit is made with an alternate stone blend that delivers a soft, multi-colored speckled finish and provides higher coverage at 50 sq.ft. Both products offer the
same easy application and level of performance. Want your new SpreadStone surface dressed in a glass-clear topcoat? Daich now offers the new SpreadStone Countertop Clear Coat for the smoothest high- gloss polished stone finish. This easy-to-apply epoxy kit adds a whole new look and feel to the Original or Mineral Select Countertop stone finishes—as well as over other existing interior countertops and tables.

The Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformations Kit eliminates the cost and stress of a total countertop replacement. The kit is suitable for use on any laminate countertop in your home, requires no special skills or tools, and cov- ers up to 50 sq. ft. The EHT staff used this product to resurface a bathroom countertop. The system requires sanding, rolling an adhe- sive base coat, spreading decora- tive plastic chips, and then sand- ing the chips to a smooth continu- ous surface. Finish up with a pro- tective top coat, and you have a glossy new countertop with a con- temporary stone-like appearance. This is a complete DIY kit with superior surface adhesion, and
the protective coating inhibits growth of mold and mildew. Visit www.rustoleum.com.
SpreadStone contains genuine stone and simply rolls onto a countertop to achieve a new surface. The Countertop Transformations Kit from Rust-Oleum requires scuff-sanding the existing coun- tertop surface.
The next step is the application of an adhesive base coat.
Next, liberally coat the adhesive with decorative chips. The chips are applied just like when using a seed spreader. (The spreader is included with the kit.)
