Finishes

Rendergun shoots the mix with some force, easily creating an excellent bond with the surface. Hugely timesaving and much less effort than doing the job by hand!

With the right mix and the right setup, all manner of finishes are possible. Many of the finishes mentioned below are textured but Rendergun can be used to create a smooth finish too, the render can simply be finished with a wooden or steel float.
