    If it looks like there is sugar mixed in the artex and a bit sharp to the touch. Also feels hard it definitely has asbestos in.
    The old artex did look sugary vs smooth and creamy.
    Many say you can't tell by looking which is true but it's a definite sign

    If i lick it, will it taste sweet then:hysterical: Can you see fibres in asbestos?
    Pretty sure I've come across it years ago in some old cement boards on a ceiling.

    I remember when artex went fibre free. It was so creamy. Think what happened was asbestos was taken out and the glues changed to more synthetic type vs bone glues or whatever they were using. I don't know tbh but very quickly the look of it changed plus they said it could be mixed with cold water vs hot. Big advances where made at the end of the 80s and loads of new manufacturers.
    Keep an eye out for that look of sand / sugar in the pattern. That's one clue to look for
