Due to school buses and snow plows being utilized in this area, a water based acrylic paint with 1 part epoxy has been recommended by the Home Depot. Multiple colors to beautify the area is recommended. Silicon can be mixed with the paint to add a little friction to the surface and reduce slip. Paint webpage.

Procedure:
  1. Blow debris off surface (power wash optional).
  2. Place templates in desired location.
  3. Tape templates down on corners.
  4. Paint line work up to 2 times.
  5. Carefully remove template and re position.
