Hello Lads,
What is the best mortar dye liquid or powder, in black. Need to match slate grey concrete coping stones the best I can.
Any tip appreciated as not really used dye that much before except on ridge tiles.
Thanks

LLL is spot on. Off the shelf dye's fade rapidly, also work out expensive if achieving a deep colour.
We use Tarmac's lime sand with added synthetic iron oxide pigments.
