The film thickness for roller finish texture is in the range of 1 to 1.5 mm.
Before painting you need to first, clean the surface properly to remove dirt, chalk, dust and particles of previous paint. This can be done by scraping your walls with a wire brush and cleaning with water. We recommend that you allow freshly plastered surfaces to cure properly with water for at least 4 weeks before painting. With regards to the painting procedure, below are the steps to be followed:
1) Apply Asian Paints Wall Putty (optional). Mix water in the Putty based on your requirement to form a paste. Allow the surface to dry for 4 hours.
2) Apply Exterior Wall Primer by mixing 900 - 1100 ml. of water. If using a spray, you need to mix 400 - 450 ml. of water. Allow surface to dry for 4 hours. (Application of primer is mandatory in case of re-painting. Horizontal surfaces like top of windows or ledges should be painted with 3 coats of Apex Ultima for greater protection).
3) Apply 2 coats of Apex Createx Dholpur Finish. Apply it with a Steel Trowel and create the desired pattern. For spray pattern apply 1 coat of Dholpur Finish. After application, allow the surface to dry for 12 - 16 hours.
4) Lastly, apply 2 - 3 coats of Asian Paints Apex Ultima/Apex/Apex Ultima Metallic. You can apply this with a brush, spray or roller by mixing 400 ml of water. Allow the surface to dry for 4 - 6 hours.
