How to get glass like reflective white floor?

3 years 3 months ago #553396 by Camera Diva
I'm setting up a section in my home studio and want the floor to be like glass and highly reflective and white.   

How can this be done?

I've tried paint and even using gloss, it wasn't reflective.  What can I do here?  

:thx2:

Try putting down sheets of plexiglass over the white painted floors.

Yep, good tip. Or white gloss ceramic tiles.

You want Plexiglass, which I think comes in 4'x8' sheets. You'll have some editing to do to remove seams.

For glass like surfaces I have used high gloss table top resin. It would not be cheap, and it would take multiple coats, but it would not scratch like plexiglass. It really depends on how much surface area you have to cover.

Actually won't that scratch easy?

True, but you can polish that to remove scratches that may come
