plastering over artex ceiling

Postby wokka69 » Tue Feb 12, 2008 8:19 pm

Hello can anybody help?
I have just skimmed over a artex ceiling with 2 coats and it is still showing bibbles of the artex pattern and it is not the best of polish finish i had hoped for.I think one more skimm coat will cover all the bibbles up,but i am a bit wary of the weight of more plaster on top of the artex.does anybody know if it will take the weight?cheers![/b]

See our projects on artex removal (plastering over artex) and on top coat plastering.If you can still se the pattern of the artex you have got no-where near enough plaster on yet.
