Hi Dan! Thanks for the reply! I tried to go that direction, mostly because it was way easier. But they didn't bite. They want the grid to fade into the concrete at the edges almost like a wash. I'm just wondering how porous smooth concrete like this is, but I can't find anything similar. I was even trying to scout out parking garages, but security guards have gotten in the way.

This is my first time posting.
I could use a little advice if anyone has experience with this. I've been doing murals for about 2 years, but the few that I've done (though very large) have been on standard interior walls. My latest job is on smooth interior concrete wall, and I am trying to find some information on how to prep and install the mural.
The client wants to keep the wall as is - with imperfections. The design is a map grid over top of the concrete with the concrete showing through. They want the paint to be translucent/thin in places, like the wall was painted a long time ago. Obviously no primer and the paint should soak in, no brush strokes. The concrete wall is very smooth. I'm concerned the paint will peel off and I'm also concerned if I do a wash of muriatic acid that it could damage the new flooring. I've tried to test on other samples, but all concrete I've found is rough and more akin to the kind you would find on the floor or on the sidewalk. So I havent been able to test yet on something with similar characteristics.
Does anyone have any experience with these materials? Any advice? Thank you!
