Rated 2 out of 5 by Bob D. More trouble than it's worth
I used this thinking it would be easier than hiring a couple of planks so I could put woodchip paper on a cracked and patched ceiling. I was wrong. It's a very slow job putting it on - load the brush too much and the stuff splashes everywhere, and I hate to think what using a roller would be like – and, though I'm a reasonably competent DIYer with a lot of experience of painting and decorating, I found it impossible to achieve a fairly uniform coverage, without bald spots where there was no texture. I later touched up the worse bald spots and, a day later again, I was horrified to see these places bubbling when I overpainted with ordinary emulsion (which had always been the intention). The bubbles have deflated as the emulsion has tried, and I just hope there are no further problems. I don't know whether these difficulties are common to all textured paints or if the Homebase product is substandard, but I wouldn't touch this kind of thing again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jvc6v good value
it was just what we wanted to finish our bathroom off,
-a silver plated lazee switch for our bathroom re- furbishment , from gold fittings to silver.
we always go to homebase first , because of range and price , plus easy access and free parking, and convenient next to sainburys supermarket.- and nectar pionts.

Bought this paint to fill in damage to a bedroom ceiling. Matched in perfectly and covered the required area brilliantly. Product was easy to apply, but concentrate on small areas at a time to ensure adequate coverage and use a big brush. Will definately use this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elsie great coverage
This product gave excellent finish, covered minor cracks and blended in with the textured surface already on the walls. Very easy to apply with an emulsion brush.

I have used textured paint before - this was much more like artex. Luckily it came off fairly easily with a scraper.

I was looking to infill and match a previously textured wall which had been done some years ago.This now to cover a newly plastered chimney brest. Although the texture was a little finer than the previous texture the overall effect blended in well. The product was easy to put on low odour and the brush was easily cleaned . A product that I would recommend,
