Anymore suggest the best way the apply this, been on an outside thats turned into a complete nightmare. Basically all the textured paint on the house is live and had to all be stripped off(nightmare), the surface is like a patio effect, the client didn't want to have it re-rendered so the only option is to reapply a textured paint to hide all the inperfections. Must admit I've never used the high build paint, should I spray it on or use a textured roller sleeve, any suggestions of alernatives to high build would be greatly appreciated, lost money already on the job, as it was a friend of mine and the labour taking it off was excruciatingly painful. ta.

I've used buckets of the stuff. I tried a high build roller and found it useless and VERY messy. I was covering a textured wall.

My solution in the end which was a nice easy system was to use a 6" trowel to apply to it 2m squares and then using their high build sleeve, LIGHTLY roller it to get the textured effect. Looked nice when done (i had a bungalow thread where it was shown).

When you open a tub, you MUST get a paddle mixer in too. Totally changed the way it applies and works.
