I have a tired looking white/light grey marble floor thats about 25 years old and want to refurbish it.
The only thing is that the colour shows every speck of dust/dog hair.
I'm thinking of experimenting with some coloured pigments rubbed in to darken the colour of the floor without losing the marble effect.
I thought about making the odd repair/chips and then sanding the marble down to strip off old sealer. Then to rub in a pigment or pigments. wipe of excess from the surface and when right tone is achived then re-seal the floor.
My questions are:
Would this work?
would the color wear off quickly ?
Am I mad
for thinking it might be possible?
Some pieces of marble are new unsealed pieces and most are old sealed pieces. After sanding the old marble to remove sealer, would the new unsealed marble absorb more color than the old sanded ones?
How much might I have to sand down to remove all sealant?
Can I chemically remove the sealant?
I will make some test samples on some new un-sealed marble and some using old sanded ones and post results.
