Let your imagination run wild as you experiment with different tools to create unique textures.


  1. Dulux Texture Medium Cover is 4-5 times the thickness of regular paint. This unique formula means you can get creative with a range of possible textures and effects. Choose a hand mitt, sponge, brush or broom to add texture to your brickwork, concrete, fibre cement or masonry.
  2. As always, mask off any areas that need protecting such as light fittings, adjoining walls and floors. Lay down a drop sheet for added protection to your floors.
  3. A broom is a great way to quickly free stubborn dust and grit from your walls before cleaning with Selleys® Original Sugar Soap.
  4. Begin by applying one coat of Dulux Exterior Texture Primer to condition the surface and help your topcoat adhering.
  5. Use a brush to cut into edges of your wall or any section that your roller will find difficult to reach.

    Lightly feather your brushwork into the wall to make blending with your roller easier.

  6. Ok, this is the fun part. Using your chosen applicator apply a generous amount of paint to your wall. Find a motion that gives you the texture you’re after.

    Test on a board first before committing to your wall.

  7. After 4 hours, apply your second coat using the same technique. This will leave you with a distressed, bold and rendered texture. Alternatively you can apply your first coat with one applicator such as a mitt and complete your second coat with a stiff bristled broom. The choice is up to you.
