Kathy asked 6 years ago

I recently started painting slate with spray paints, creating looks similar to cave walls. I was told by a Home Depot person that the slate could be used on a floor if I put a good polyurethane finish on it. Is it possible to do so? Will it last? Would the tiles be better used as back-splash or other wall decor. They turned out so beautiful, and people have been asking me about doing pieces for their floors.

Yes, but for floors, use a hard clear urethane enamel…
