In the past I used X-Tex on several ceilings and walls in my house. I found the best way was to paint on the gel then cover the area with sheets of polythene to keep the gel moist and leave as long as possible. The thick areas of artex I left like this overnight then removed the artex relatively easily using a six inch, very sharp bladenext day. Yes, it is messy, expensive and time consuming but it certainly did the trick for me and was the most effective of all the other methods I used.
