    Would I be able to use bonding coat instead of blue grit? If so, would I PVA the wall before applying bonding coat? Just think it may be better to get some of the depth of artex deslt with before skimming?

    Cheers.

    ive never used bonding coat to build out artex, but i know plasterers that do.
    there’s not much depth in that pattern , 2 coat skim will do it.
    but , yes , neat pva the day before bonding.
    some pva again before laying on but i dont.
