Artex is a surface paint, most commonly used on walls, used for interior decorating, which helps the decorator to add a texture to it. The Artex brand is a trademark of Artex Ltd., a company based in the United Kingdom.
Plastering over Artex
Artex plastering is now a very popular part of our trade. As the skim coat is only 3 mm thick, any artex must have a backing (bonding) coat added first. When the bonding coat is dry, you add PVA to minimise suction when the top coat is skimmed. This will give you the flat finish desired.
