    My Gran has asked me to paint the roughcast walls of her bungalow. The
    existing paint is quite sound but she wants it 'spruced up'.

    What is the best way to apply the texture paint? Any tips much
    appreciated

    archierob,

    Whether you will use Sandex or not, there's some good and useful basic
    information here about wall painting.

    ==================================
    I would suggest that you use a smooth paint (i.e. NOT textured - textured
    wouldn't really show on rough cast) and apply it with an Emulsion brush.
    Look in your local DIY place for emulsion brushes.
