Sandtex High Build - Application Techniques
- ARCS HIGH BUILD
Achieve this decorative effect for ceilings and walls by applying Sandtex Trade High Build by trowel to give an even coating of 1-2mm thickness. Then, place the serrated edge of the texturing spatula in the material and turn through a half circle. Continue in rows with each subsequent row overlapping the previous one.
- LACED HIGH BUILD
Create this traditional, almost linear effect by applying Sandtex Trade High Build with a hawk or trowel to a thickness of roughly 1-2mm and then smooth off the peaks using the straight edge of a texturing spatula.
- SPRAYED HIGH BUILD
Achieve this consistent textured finish by using a gravity fed hopper spray to apply Sandtex Trade High Build spray over Sandtex Trade Fine Textured Matt.
- TRADITIONAL HIGH BUILD
Either apply randomly with a well loaded roller to distribute evenly, or apply by trowel an even coating of 1-2mm thickness. Finish with a roller in short overlapping strokes.
