Art in the making

Smith’s Color Floor is a waterbased extra-strength stain developed to achieve a decorative natural appearance on concrete floors and other porous mediums. Formulated as a user-friendly alterative to hazardous solvent and acidbased stains, Smith’s Color Floor utilizes state-of-the-art pigment preparation and new acrylic polymer research to ensure the highest quality results. Thanks to its superior adhesion, the stain works well on a variety of surfaces, including, but not limited to, interior and exterior concrete, brick, plaster and natural stone. In addition to 20 base colors, Smith’s Color Floor is available in “Bright Lights” (a high chroma stain) as well as metallic, iridescent, pearlescent and flip-flop colors. Smith’s Color Floor can be applied via airbrush, high volume low-pressure unit (HVLP), production gun, pump (bug) sprayer, sea sponge and traditional bristle brush. For best results, create a “mist” of Smith’s Color Floor on the intended surface. A variegated finish is achieved through the various absorbencies of the surface material as well as the differing specific gravities of the color pigments. Therefore, the application of additional coats or the use of a roller application results in a monotone appearance or painted look. Concrete sealer is recommended to extend the stain’s longevity. Smith’s Color Floor is compatible with single and twocomponent epoxies, urethane, solvent and water-based sealers. For more information, call (800) 466-8781 or visit
