That doesn't work - it lifts right next to your patch. You have to start over or do something different

Stone Effects does not lend itself well to patch-up work. A thin coat of product over the entire surface works best to restore the appearance of the surface. First, exise the bubbled, and/or peeling area, and clean the exposed concrete with a stiff bristle brush, and some warm water. Rinse well, and allow surface to dry. Next, scuff sand the entire surface with 100 grit sandpaper to abrade the Step 3 sealer. Clean away any sanding dust. Re-prime exposed concrete only, then 4 hours later, fill in the newly primed area with some Step 2 product, to make the area being repaired flush with the rest of the surface. You can then apply a very thin skim coat of Step 2 over the entire surface to even out the appearance. Allow the Step 2 material to dry 24 hours before re-sealing with Step 3. Apply a new coat of Step 3 every 2 years to ensure the surface is as water resistant as possible. Bubbles will happen when water has found a way under the finish. By re-sealing every other year, water stays out, and the finish stays beautiful.
