Artex removal

Postby steveD53 » Thu Jan 26, 2012 3:00 pm

Is there an efficient product for the removal of artex, I'm concerned steaming may damage old plaster /archetectural moldings beneath.

Depends how much time you have on your hands. If you have hours to scrape the artex back with it rock solid then it can be done but not very efficiently.
