Sometimes you want to use a texture that is absorbent. For example, you may at some point intend to trowel a texture up on a surface and then glaze it to look old and weathered. To achieve this old and weathered look, your texture will need to absorb the glaze in just the right way.

If you find yourself experimenting with the Smooth Translucent Texture and you feel it is not absorbent enough, then you can add some Smooth Absorbent Texture to increase the absorbency. You will eventually come up with a nice formula of X parts STT and X parts SAT that suits your needs perfectly.

Here is a guide to help you think about this concept more.
