Cheap Non-Skid Paint

I have been using Valspar non skid paint for three years now. Its a great alternative to marine deck paints. costs 20 dollars a gallon- in the USA its sold by lowes' home improvement shops. custom mix it in a wide variety of colours. I have just now needed to repaint the decks. I think it represents very good value for money, great non skid qualities that are also soft on the feet and knees.
I have no connection with Valspar or Lowes'

non skid

Just a light dusting with #1 sand sold anywhere as play sand for $3 for 50 lb bag will make paint non skid. A must for painted decks and stairs in residential housing.
