Nonslip Paint

You can make your own nonslip paint.

What they barely touch on, in talking about whether you'd walk on it barefoot, is the safety issue created by the grit.  If you spread out large grains, and someone falls on it, that's like falling on a cheese grater.  It takes very little pressure to remove a layer of skin.  (My grandparents had a wall textured with sand, and brushing against it could take skin off.)  A safer version is to use so much fine grit that the surface is evenly rough, like an emery board, not bumpy.  This will add grip when wet, although nothing that's safe to walk on will push texture through ice.
