Easy way to anti-skid your painted deck.
An easy way to anti-skid your painted deck, duck board etc.
Prepare and paint the area as recommended by the manufacturers, put down the last layer.
When dry mark off the area you want to anti-skid, make the design you want and drain lines if needed.
Once marked off, paint another layer over the area to be anti-skid, while wet sprinkle evenly course raw sugar over the wet paint, the courser the rougher it will make the anti skid.
Leave to dry.
When completely dry just wash the area and dissolve the sugar, the imprint of the sugar remains and gives you the anti-skid.
I have used it on the floors of dinghies, decks and on duck boards.
I imagine course salt would work similar, I have not tried it.
Practice your painting and sprinkling on waste first.
