I just finished faux painting our cement floor. I really like how it turned out and peole are surprised it is just painted. We used a base cement paint (after etching the cement floor), next I ragged a different color on (using a t-shirt) then I mixed a another darker color with glaze and ragged that on. We wanted a tile look but instead of using tape now looks like one large sheet of linoleum. we sealed with 2 coats of polyurthen (???)
We do have 1 problem....we could use some help with. Spots are blistering and peeling. We did a moisture test before and are ok, we etched, we used cement paint for the first coat. Does any one have any ideas and how we may be able to stop itand why ist is happening? It looks really nice and I hate to see it chip all apart. (plus we have a lot of work into it!!!)
