Painting a Front Walk


I had a problem with my front walk. it had a big hole that just seemed to get bigger every year, it got so big that we decided that it needed to be fixed. the hole was 3 feet wide and 4 feet long, so we filled in the hole, it took six bags of cement to fill it in. then I noticed that the hole was a different color then the rest of the front walk.
so I got this idea to paint the walk. I just didn't know

      Many years ago I painted a large concrete stepping stone with a colorful picture of a tree frog. I first sprayed an exterior varnish over the whole stone to keep it from absorbing water that would pop any kind of paint off (the Kilz waterproofing would accomplish this on the sidewalk and steps. I used the patio paint, which is designed for outdoor projects. This stone stayed colorful for about 10 years (would have lasted longer if I hadn't thrown some snowmelt on the place where the snow covered my stepping stone - live and learn.

      I believe she mentioned that the paint a bit thicker and seemed to have sand in it. If not the seems perfect idea.
