Texture technique


I'm trying to figure out a texture technique that I've seen. It's smooth with tiny holes (almost like termite holes)...??? Not sure how to explain the look, but does anyone know the technique and how it is acheived?? Thanks!

Here is a supplier of Venetian Plasters that I've worked with...

http://www.permatone.com/applicationGuide/Sabbia.html

down the left side are a bunch of different products that they have, which will likely get to what you're looking for.

I would warn you that these are pretty complex applications and not likely something that can be done without training. There are a few that will get you half way there that you could probably try out. If I find some info on the DIY designed products, I'll post them.

This is a more DIY friendly set of stuff...still takes a little work though.
