A paint of heavy consistency and coarse grain consisting usually of gypsum and sand with water-thinned binder and used for creating a rough patterned effect on a wall.
Texture in painting refers to the look and feel of the canvas. It is based on the paint, and its application, or the addition of materials such as ribbon, metal, wood, lace, leather and sand. The concept of "painterliness" also has bearing on texture. The texture stimulates two different senses: sight and touch. There are four types of texture in art: actual, simulated, abstract, and invented texture
