Pond color - Please Help right away
My pond has just been enlarged and was completely redone. It's in a corner of a courtyard and I guess other details are not important at this time, but I have an urgent question ~ please respond right away if possible.
It is concrete and the person putting it in for me is doing a great job but....the nearly last step is sealing it. He is using an epoxy type paint called 'Aqua Seal' which is supposed to be O.K. for fish and plants but it's the color I'm unhappy with. The only choices were 2 shades of blue, black or white. The walls are flagstone and I'm trying to keep it as natural as possible. I didn't like the idea of blue and black (seemed like it would be too dark & spooky looking) so I went with white which I don't like. It looks too glarey~ now, I don't know what to do. He has only applied one coat and wanted to come back tomorrow and do another.
It's quite expensive but I would be willing to forgo the 2nd coat and waste it if I can change the color. Can it be tinted? I wanted tan or even gray. If not tinted, can it be painted over after the 2nd coat of white? Please help, he doesn't know yet that I'm unhappy with it and I hate to tell him but if I can change it, I want to.
