How to Swirl A Concrete Finish


There is a little bit of artistic talent in all of us. To design your own custom design is not as hard as you may think. I will show you how.

  • There are many ways to make your concrete surface have a signature finish. One way is to do a swirl type finish. You can also add color to your concrete to give it a little more of your own personal flair. Let's see how to make a swirl type concrete finish.

  • Take your trowel and tip it slightly to its side. In other words just use the edge of your trowel to make your swirl design.

  • Work the trowel lightly making sure not to dig into the concrete too deep. Make sure you do not dig the edge of the trowel into the concrete also.

  • Do not make a uniform pattern. Just make random patterns for a swirl look to your concrete. Make interlocking arcs in the concrete. Don't forget to texture your edges to get a uniform look.

  • Continue this in the next section to keep your theme of random swirls going. Now you just let it dry and you are done.

Tips & Warnings

  • Practice on some loose dirt to get the swirl style down to a design you want.
