Internal pebble dash

Postby Sarah Dickinson » Thu May 24, 2007 11:36 am

I have two internal walls which are pebble dashed which have been painted white. Unfortunately the base of the wall was damaged and then re-plastered but now the contrast between the two is very obvious i.e. part smooth and part pebbled.

I would like to know how to give it a textured look or how to pebble dash it. The area it covers is approximately 3 meters square.

Pebble dash is stuck on a sand and cement render mixed at 3 to 1 and fairly wet. Plaster it on the wall and press pebbles into it until they stick.
