DIY Ocean Wave Epoxy Floor: Easy Step-by-Step Guide
Discover how you can create an ocean wave effect on your flooring with this easy-to-follow guide. Spartan Epoxies’ expert, Jeff, shows us how anyone can achieve this incredible look, whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or a professional installer.
Get Ready with the Right Mix
Before diving into the sea of colors, start by preparing your epoxy mix. Combine pigments with Part A of Clear 100 epoxy and let them saturate overnight. This step ensures that the colors blend seamlessly into your epoxy, creating a rich, deep oceanic effect.
Wall Preparation is Key
Don’t overlook the importance of wall prep! Clean corners, window seals, and block air vents and windows. This prevents bubbles and ensures a smooth, even finish, just like the calm before a storm.
Dive into Day Two – The Ocean Wave Creation
Now, it’s time to bring the ocean wave to life. Mix Part B with pearl and apply in a circular design for guidance. This circular pattern isn’t just for looks; it’s a roadmap for your other colors and adds lubrication for easier application.
Color Your Ocean
Unleash your creativity with multiple shades of blue. From Caribbean blue to a greyish Ocean hue, each color adds depth and motion to your ocean wave. Don’t be afraid to experiment – your floor is your ocean!
Spartan Epoxies shows us how simple techniques can create stunning effects. Just like Bob Ross creates magic with minimal effort, you too can swirl, blend, and create waves with ease.
For the Large Seas (Floors)
Got a big floor? Plan ahead! Coordinate with your team, keep designs simple yet effective, and remember – a 3-gallon kit covers up to 210 square feet.
The Final Touches
Use a leaf blower for air manipulation, adding that final wave-like motion to your floor. And for the edges, a squeegee does wonders for a seamless finish.
The Test of Time
Wondering about durability? This floor can withstand the rough and tumble of daily life – perfect for homes with kids and pets.
