It's not quite as easy to track down a plasterer who will take on artexing at the moment, whereas previously there were lots of tradesmen who did very little else but artex and artex patching. The thing that helped its attractiveness was the wide selection of designs that it was applied in, and it seemed to be the case that everyone had their favourite, maybe it might have been stipple, broken leather, circle, hook & line, pairs, bark, medusa, criss-cross, basket & roses, scroll or swirl.
