I am interested in the possibility of using your product to pour a small walkway. It is right at a yard and b/c is so small will be using a cement mix like Sakrete or Quikrete. Do you have a preference and what would be the mixing ratio? Also, would I need to seal it? I'm concerned that if I do I may compromise traction as it is outdoors. Thank you for your help
You would have to measure out an even portion for each batch you make. I would probably tell you to use to the quickrete color available at most home improvement stores.

Hi, Can Color-Crete liquid be applied to exterior slate wall tiles? Can this product be used on natural stone?
Color Crete is for adding to a batch of concrete to add color integrally, not for adding color after the fact. Natural stone doesnt have the same properties as concrete, as it is less porous so it doesnt take color well. You can try stain-crete but no guarantees on its effectiveness.

It is very difficult to match colors between different materials, in this case, shingles vs concrete. From what I have seen, autumn brown would be your closest match.
