Proceed® Smooth Absorbent Texture is an opaque, acrylic mastic texture coating that requires minimal surface preparation to correct minor surface blemishes and drywall seams. It dries to a porous and absorbent surface that takes up decorative stains and glazes easily. Smooth Absorbent Texture is an ideal ground for creating fresco-like murals, the look of European plaster surfaces and can convey rustic and refined, old world and contemporary looks rich in texture. For a technical overview, please click the Technical Data Sheet

This is a technique that uses Smooth Absorbent Texture. The instructions used to create this technique are found here.


  • We call this product Smooth Absorbent Texture because it dries to a smooth and absorbent surface and can be troweled on to create textural effects.
  • Can be tinted, troweled, sanded, thinned and sprayed or rolled.
  • Has a "nap" to it: as Smooth Absorbent Texture is troweled, the material will follow the direction of the toolmark.
  • Surface quality description: softer, dry, matte, chalky.
  • Great as a mural ground.
  • Translucent
  • Can be applied over the top of surfaces to lighten colors and create a chalky, matte quality.
  • Proceed textures are formulated to contain less than 50 g/l of VOC’s and, as such, meet the criteria for LEED Credit 4.2 (Low Emitting Materials – Paints and Coatings).
