If you want to add color without shine I'd recommend honing to 400 and putting a water based sealer on it. You'll get the color you need and the sealer wont make it any darker.
I have been working on a project for the last couple months. Client had
basalt shipped unfinished and installed in his new home. They have 3,500
sqft. on main floor. We were hired to finish on site. At first they wanted
stone brought to 200 finish and color enhansed. After our initial cut they
fell in love with the lighter gray color and asked us to change the finish
to exclude the color enhanser. Now that we have brought the whole floor up
to 200 and sealed (and cabinets/appliances etc. have been set) they are
not quite loving the color they have. Their question and mine, Is there a
color enhanser that will not darken the stone to black, like the example I
did with the StoneTech enhanser? Each pass with the diamonds darkens the
stone a degree. I'm open to suggestions. Should I reccomend one more pass
up to 400 to change the shade a little? Is there anything out there that
will slightly alter the shade of the stone? I look forward to your input.
Thanks in advance.
