    I have a rendered wall and the previous owner has tried to repair cracks in the render but didn't quite get the texture right so the repairs stand out like a sore thumb. The render has an orange-peel rough-ish texture but the repair is smooth (see photo).

    I'm wanting to paint over the crack again but want to get the texture to be the same as the rest of the wall - is it the type of paint I use or the roller that creates the desired texture on the wall?

    I'm thinking of using either Bedec extra-flex elastomeric masonry paint or Johnstone's Stormshield Textured Masonry paint. Which one (if any) would give me the texture? I think I'd need a roller with a long nap?

    Hope people can help - thanks in advance.
