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.

How do I apply Smooth Absorbent Texture?

Apply to a clean, dry substrate by roller or trowel. Apply at rate of 70 - 80 sq. ft./gal. to conceal surface irregularities of the substrate or to cover holes and minor cracks. Trowel or tool to desired appearance. Subsequent coats may be applied if desired. Let dry 12 - 24 hours before overcoating with other Proceed® products. Full hardness is developed in 2 - 4 weeks. May be thinned with water to adjust application consistency. Clean tools with soap and water. Store between 50º - 80ºF.

How do I tint Smooth Absorbent Texture?

Tint with Proceed Pigment Dispersions. Do not add more than 10% dispersion. Always test tint ratio before use. Use of more than recommended percentage could cause water sensitivity. For more information please review How to Tint the Proceed Products.

Flame Spread Rating

Golden Artist Colors, Inc. has not performed testing to assign a rate of flame spread for Golden water-based acrylic paints and mediums. However, given their formulation, our water-based products would be expected to perform similarly to typical latex house paints in regard to their ability to support combustion.
