Has anyone had any experience with coloring concrete with pigments for floors, walls and ceilings?

Hi Grant. There are a number of members that do have experience, including Atlas Shrugged and Cruzing. If you look on the blog you can see some of the results of the exterior look on the 'Spanish Style Villa'.

I have been tracking another project which is using stamped concrete floors, died exteriors and concrete counters. It is the Atlas Shrugged project, if you search his posts you will find a link to his picture gallery.

It is really, really a good way to go. It is both economical and athletically much more attractive that regular paint, IMHO. However there are some downsides also. The dies must be mixed and there can be color inconsistancy any other problems.
