    Concrete will stain just like any porous surface would, but I highly
    recommend it for tabletops if you are in a clay studio. The concrete can be
    molded smooth, and makes a great wedging surface - it won't move around
    because of its weight, and will absorb water out of clay like nobody's
    business. :)
