Dot and dab over artex :/ seems alot of extra money to shell out when you can pull a coat of browning over it for £7 plus a tub of pva.

You can use bonding over it not browning though. I prefer just to scrape back and pva and skim . Some people put bonding on ceilings then skim on top I don't like that idear as your putting to much weight on the ceiling

Depends on the thickness of the artex plus the the fact alot of old artex has a small amount of abestos in it and alot of people not wanting you to scrape back

Can't remember the name of the stuff but you can get specialist tack to paint over artex to prep it for plaster. :yes: The shit is green and has got grit of some sort in it to give a key once it's gone off, I remember that much! :laugh:

      I have achallenging permission in North Essex near Sudbury . The owner wants rabbits cleared off it and I don't have the time to have a serious crack at it due to other commitments. I've tried live catch cage traps to no avail. Are there any snare/trap men or serious shootists that want a go? The owner will pay for good results.
