Leggari specializes in epoxy resin kits. The team was tasked with creating an underwater-themed floor. To do this, they first apply a light blue primer. This helps the bonding between the concrete and the next layer. Then, a sky blue base coat is poured on and spread with a squeegee. A deep blue color is poured on top in small sections. This will create the highlights that give it the look of water. The two colors are swirled together using a roller. An optional step is to spray the floor with 91% or higher isopropyl alcohol. The alcohol disperses the epoxy. It creates cell-like shapes that look like bubbles. The floor is finished with a gloss urethane topcoat with grit additive for durability.
