    Default What sort of render for very thin repairs ?

    We're renovating our laundry and I removed the splashback tiles and carefully sanded of the adhesive remnants.This left some shallow gouges,around 2 to 3 mm deep.We want to restore this area to match the rest of the laundry which is cement render on brick (there wont be a bench/laundry trough in this location now )
    Am I guessing correctly that cement based render such as Bunnings have in a bag wan't adhere in such a thin layer ? If not what can I use that may look like the original even if not exactly.Acrylic ? or what.Thanks in advance.

    Is it smooth render, or textured? Will you be painting it?
