Email from Screwfix so this maybe of use to someone as this stuff usually sells about £20/5litres so if you have white walls to paint externally then this maybe for you.

A great price for good paint. Purchased the 5ltr and was quite impressed with the quality and coverage. Probably spend another week getting it out from under my fingernails!
Definitely hot. Normally is around £35, I bought a tub from Wickes at £30 last summer.
36 pounds last week...grrrrr....hot!
Pretty sure masonry paint is great for sheds or fences etc
Heat from me!!(_;)

I would assume textured would wear your brush quicker having a certain content of aggregate within it and you will not be able to use it in a spray gun either.

PS: If you wanted more texture/aggregate within the paint then silicone sand is what I would recommend.

There are two main types of masonry paint to choose from. If specified and applied correctly, both will last up to 15 years. If you’re painting a large surface area, then a ‘Smooth’ version is likely to be your best option. As the name suggests, it will have a smooth, creamy consistency that makes it quick and easy to apply.

The alternative is ‘Fine Textured’ masonry paint, which is great when extra durability is required for areas that are exposed to harsh elements. Its formulation is also ideal for covering fine cracks in existing surfaces.
