Textured paint

7 posts in this topic

Does anyone have recipe for mixing up textured paint like GW makes?

 

The recipes I've seen and videos from youtube are a little vague on the ratios and such.

 

I get the gist of it which combines wall filler (Drydex I assume), paint and sand.

 

Is this what you guys use?

You can mix them yourself or you can just get acrylic texture mediums ("media" would be more historically correct <_<) from art supply stores. Then just mix to a color that you like.

And something that has structure and volume, so you can sculpt the result rather than just painting it on.

I'd fully agree.  Got to your local art supply store.  All sorts of texture paints.  Otherwise I found mediums from AK Interactive quite good.  Not sure about where you are or if somewhere local has the products.  Added link to the store I use here in Australia.

This guy — Luke, from Luke's Affordable Paint Service — has a video on how to make it (and lots of other useful stuff too).
