Can you add paint to wet concrete for stepping stone?

I like making/decorating stepping stones from concrete but don't like that dull gray color. Can I add paint to the concrete before it dries? If so what kind of paint? Has anyone out there tried it and what kind of luck have you had with it? Thanks

See "Stepping Stone Recipe" post, the next one down. The recipe that was given to me stated that you could add latex paint to the concrete mix. The lady who gave me the recipe said it was a good way to get rid of leftover paint.

Thanks Silvamae. Do you know if the paint has

to be latex? or would any paint do?

I would use up any paint that cleans up with soap and water (acrylic latex, latex). I would not use oil-based paint in a stepping stone mix.
