    Hi all,

    A house I am purchasing has this Artex and a radius between the wall and ceiling. Anyone have idea how this is done and how easy it would be to remove and replaster for a 90 degree angle. Also I believe I would need an asbestos test before even thinking of removing it?


    Thanks for any advice in advance.

    If I’m seeing the picture right it’s a pretty small radius curve, so it may just be done by forming it in plaster with the original corner underneath still a right angle. Larger radiuses are done by forming say 2x45 angles then dubbing it out to form a curve with plaster. So if you’re happy to make a mess and break out the corner and replaster/reskim ceiling and wall then perfectly doable.
    Yes potential asbestos risk so testing a good idea.
