I made a cement patio with a mold that looks like stones it came out great the only thing is when i filled in the cracks i sweeped some sandmix with some dry charcol color and that came out nice also it just left a film of dust that stays on the main stones will this fade in time or is there some way to fix it when its wet you cant see the film of dust.

It's hard to say with those dyes, try looking at the faq page of web site of the dye you used. They may offer more insight into your specific situation?

There are concrete stain removers but I don't know if they would work or make it worse.

You could try TSP (tri sodium phospate) in a more inconspicuous location, I've had good results with other stains using that... but that is just a guess for those dyes.
