Hi there!

I just bought a house that happens to have RL River Rock paint in one of our rooms and the color just doesn't look good. I want to remove it. From reading the above posts, it sounds like I don't have to scrape it off to go back to smooth walls. Is it true that primer and some high quality paint (like Benjamin Moore) will cover the texture?

Thanks!

Wow I was looking to repaint my new house in this because I used it in my current home. I had no problems and loved the look for over 10 years.

i have used this paint also and it looks exactly like its supposed to. I was not an experienced painter when i did it and i did buy the special rollers and followed the directions. The salesperson at home depot recommended a primer tinted grey with the green moss RL paint and I did that too.It did take longer than using regular paint, any texture would though. i used it about 6 years ago in a busy room and it still looks great, it has not rubbed off like someone told me it would.

I have had great success applying the first coat as directed, then as I roll on the second coat in a perpendicular direction, I use a fat stiff brush to stipple with additional paint all over at random. This obliterates all streaks.
