Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Texture, Easy Application I used a 100% acryllic paint/primer with this additive to simulate stucco. After a good priming, I stirred a mixture of paint and the highest recommended amount of sand texture (6-oz. per gallon of paint). It was relatively clean and easy to mix, and seemed not to clump in the paint. I was not able to roll on the paint, but I wanted a very detailed texture, so instead used a 2.5" brush on the whole room. The effect was exactly what I wanted, and gave the room a very authentic, hand-crafted texture. The additive did not seem to increase the amount of paint required at all, and coverage was very good. I recommend this Homax additive for good surface depth, but I would definitely prime first or use a paint/primer (or both, as I did). Looks great! June 24, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Easy Mixed up a gallon this weekend and rolled it on with a 3/8" roller just as directed. Application was no more difficult than rolling out the paint alone. Mixed up a stiffer batch the second gallon to tackle some imperfections in the wall. Still pretty easy to roll. I love the flexibility this product affords! September 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Stuff As I read in another review yes it does go on much better with a brush. I've rolled it onto ceilings with eggshell. You can roll it on but it has to be rolled heavy and quite even. Do not breathe this stuff in, it flies easily until it's wet. February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ease of use with professional results The product is easy to use. Simply just add to paint and brush on or can even be used with a roller. Great for covering repairs or high visibility areas. Cleanup was easy with soap and water. April 2, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great stuff! Very easy to use, and the wall turned out great! A good, inexpensive option. September 30, 2011
