Art Studio Making Journal – Week 1

My studio floor is made of concrete. Although concrete is strong and unbeatable, it can wear out over time. Sealing the floor with a sealant extends the lifetime of the concrete. But before sealing the floor, the oil stains on the floor need to be removed. Professionals would clean with an oil remover and give an acid or etching treatment to the floor surface before sealing. But doing all treatments seemed too much for a non-technical artist. Since my floor was not in bad condition, I decided to clean only with the oil remover. The Oil Eater Cleaner/Degreaser has done an excellent job!

In addition, there were large gaps between the floor and the wall. I needed to fill and caulk the gaps before sealing, because that will definitely give me a headache to clean, once the clay dust gets inside. I added filling and caulking to my list of things to do this week. The Moisture repellant, Frost King C23H Caulk Saver, was thick enough to fill most of the gaps.
