Texture paints consist of coarse grains (such as gypsum, sand, etc.) metal, ribbon, lace, leather, etc with the water-thinned binder used for creating a rough pattern effect on a wall. They have become one of the most popular trends in painting as different types of styles can be created on the wall surface. They simulate two different senses: sight and touch. They are often used as an alternative to wallpaper and it is also a great solution to hide uneven and imperfect wall surfaces and even to some extent micro waves.
