Floor mural clear question.

    So a local artist, (not us) painted one of those floor murals, where it looks like the ground is breaking away. Anyway, he's an airbrushes artist, so the city had no choice but to clear it so his hard work wouldn't wear away in a matter of months. The clear they used is holding up good, the problem is, it's on a downtown sidewalk in front of a restaurant and anytime it rains the surface turns into a giant slip-n-slide. So not good. Now they're coming to us asking if we know of a product that we can clear over this art that will also provide enough traction to walk over. Any ideas? We've never done this type of work before so I have no idea.

    Another coat of the same clear they used with the grit/sand that can be mixed with paint to give it traction?

    mix silica sand with the clear. Sherwin Williams typically has the silica additive in stock. It's basically a clear sand so it won't dull the image.
