Add Sand for Safer Surfaces

Mix clean sand and paint to create slip-proof surfaces.


| December 2011/January 2012


If you want to create slip-proof surfaces, such as on stairs and boat docks, mix some clean sand with your paint and apply.

It will work best if you put the paint and sand in a roller pan so some of the sand adheres to the roller or brush with each pass.
