 Cant afford render try using this Paint do-it-yourself

"if you are getting blog via email click above heading for missing pictures and video"


Found this at Bunnings Warehouse .
It is a paint that looks pretty much like render, I have not used this but look  at pictures below.
If you have used this please comment on it below or email me
Notice the more layers you do the more it tends to fill and look like render.
I will be using this paint paint on a Balcony to match the current render.
Look at the Blue Board and the option was tiles or paint.

Surface Preparation

All surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned and free of all dirt, loose and flaking paint. Efflorescence or mould must be treated before application of paint. New concrete, mortar or cement render must be allowed to cure for 4 to 8 weeks depending on concrete thickness and drying conditions. Fill holes with grouting cement. Wash down with water using a stiff brush to remove all loose material. To test the adhesion of previously painted surfaces, cut an 'X' through the existing paint with a sharp blade, press cellulose tape firmly across the cut and then rip the tape off. If the old paint or render comes off, it should be removed. On porous surfaces, applying a priming coat thinned with water (4 parts Medium Texture: 1 part water) will condition the surface and help aid application of additional coats.

Clean Up

Clean all equipment with water
