Concrete patio design

Need a design of three colors for an outside patio, stained concrete, but want to paint over it with three colors. Thinking of just splattering it. Anyone have a design in mind and how to do it?

Please don't splatter, there's so many great designs and stencils out there

You'll want to do a surface prep test before proceeding. Typically paints will not adhere properly to a stained and/or sealed surface and you will get peeling paint in a short time. You may have to strip surface, chemically or mechanically etch surface, clean, then apply new finish.

ANYTHING WITH A PIGMENT THAT YOU PUT ON AN OUTSIDE PATIO WILL COME UP, WEAR OFF OR FLAKE OFF. It may last a few years but it will happen.
There is no way around this no matter what the brochures proclaim. THe colors of tinted concrete almost always horrible- too red, too orange, dead brown etc. You best bet is a concrete stain used over a tinted concrete to enhance the color of knock it down. You almost have to pour the concrete and see how the color came out to decide how to deal with lt
