Is it artex or is it textured paint?

Artex can be removed but I've never tried removing it from coving and theres a better than even chance of damaging the coving in the process. So it strikes me you have two options: just paint it or replace the coving to save time and energy.

If im not too late X-Tex will remove it form coving. I did some about two months ago. You do have to be carefull but it worked a treat. Look in projects under removing artex.
