Remove all wallpaper and paste, and ensure all surfaces are sound clean, non-dusting, free from grease and dry. Lightly sand gloss surfaces, wash the surface and allow to dry. Fill hairline cracks with mixed Artex Textured Finish. For large cracks and plasterboard jointing use a thick mix of Artex Textured Finish applied in conjunction with Artex Joint Tape (see mixing instructions). Allow to dry.
Seal porous surfaces (such as new piaster. plasterboard and surfaces stripped of wallpaper and paste) and areas prepared with Artex Textured Finish. with Artex Sealer and allow to dry.
Before application practice texturing on a board until you achieve the desired effect.
Using an Artex Laying-on Brush or a wide paintbrush, apply a generous, even coat of Artex Textured Finish in 1 x 0.5 metre bands across the narrow ceiling width or down the wall.
Pattern this band as you work, continue in this way across the entire surface, working quickly and carefully to blend in successive bands while the material is still wet. Finish by (13-25mm) around the wall/ceiling edge using a small paint brush. Clean splashes as you go using water.
