Customer Questions & Answers

How many square feet this does it cover?

Asked by: Anonymous
One can mixes with one pouch and I got about 200sqft. It all depends on how thick you apply the additive to the paint.

Can I uee this with a paint spray gun

Asked by: Ralphie
The Sand Texture Paint Additive cannot be sprayed; it will clog your sprayer. Apply using a 3/8" nap roller.

Will this work on plaster walls that have been painted but a bad job of taking wall paper off prior to the paint job?

The walls,have many lines and grooves and really want to paint but can't afford or have the time to send the walls.
Asked by: Badwall
For best results, apply the Sand Paint Texture to flat walls. It's likely you will see the lines and groves through the paint and texture.

Customer Reviews

Sand Texture Paint Additive is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not purchase! The texture material will fall off if bumped or rubbed against leaving a white mark underneath. Also, the paint texture dulls the finish of the paint. Two of our walls did not need texture so when I painted them and touched up other areas the Satin paint was shinier. All this to say, I wasted 4 gallons of expensive paint and will need to knock off the texture in order to repaint!!!!!!! What a waste!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy finish for amateur to apply I have used the Homax medium texture many times over the last dozen years. I typically do a couple of coats or until I am happy with the look, then put a final coat of paint without the texture to make sure it is all sealed in well. I am not one of those that try to get by with as little paint or coats of paint as possible. I figure I am saving a bundle not paying a painter so I can spend extra on paint and supplies. I love doing doors with this texture. The doors look like stone and it hides small dings. The texture looks good with everything from flat to glossy paint. Glossy ceilings are the new modern style, and this texture makes it look amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for retexturizing repaired area on wall This wasjust the thing needed to make a repaired area right again. Directions were easy to follow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Okay This is the first time I have used a sand additive to paint. I have 60-year-old plaster walls that have seen better days so I thought I would try it on a bathroom wall. It does what it says it will do but is very difficult to apply. It literally fell off of a large brush all over the floor. Using a roller is better but you have to go over and over it all kinds of ways to get the texture to spread evenly. It also takes a long time to dry. I would recommend this product if you have a really bad wall and don't mind spending all kinds of time painting. Other than that, I would not.
