How Do I Artex a Patch in Ceiling?

Answer

To start with, make absolutely sure that there are no flaking or loose sections of the artex, or indeed ceiling/wall. Then remove all obviously 'high spots' of artex, where the stipples hang down. Read on on how to patch an apex ceiling on http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects/artex.htm

The process of artexing a patch to a ceiling is very simple, however it is difficult to achieve an even design all over. Using an artex roller, apply one coat of artex over an area of approximately 1 square meter, then create your desired patterned finish, for example, stippling, waving or combing. When you have completed the first area repeat this procedure until the entire ceiling is covered.
