Step 1 – Choose sprayer

Select the type of manual coating sprayer/applicator you wish to use.

If large areas of the wall are to be sprayed, then a plastic sprayer would be beneficial.

Step 3 – Practise

Practice spraying on a test-piece (e.g. plasterboard) before moving on to the wall to be coated.

Point the sprayer opening at the test-piece and rotate the handle clockwise. The mix should then be sprayed out.

You will discover that altering the tensioner and holding the sprayer at different angles to the test piece will result in different textures and finishes.

Step 5 – Repeat

Make several passes along the wall, applying the mix in continuous light sprays, returning over the same area until the required thickness is obtained (thickness depends on type of mix being applied).

Leave time between passes

Care should always be taken to avoid merging and patchiness in the texture, by leaving sufficient time between passes. This time varies depending upon the consistency and thickness of the mix applied, and test spraying on a piece of test-area or board prior to spraying the wall will give you an indication of how long this time should be.

Take frequent breaks

The manual operated sprayer can be heavy when full of mix, so be aware that as it’s hand operated, it can be very exhausting to use all day on large areas.

The average sized manual coating sprayer filled with roughcast, will consistently cover an area of approximately 1 square metre at a time (1m2). However, this coverage area will vary depending on the capacity of the sprayer casing, the mix being used and how much it is filled each time by the user.
